The drawing shows three point charges fixed in place. The charge at the coordinate origin has a?
q1 = +8.50 µC; the other two have identical magnitudes, but opposite signs: q2 = -5.00 µC and q3 = +5.00 µC.
(a) Determine the net force (magnitude and direction) exerted on q1 by the other two charges.
(b) If q1 had a mass of 1.50 g and it were free to move what would be its acceleration?
The Attempt at a Solution
Fy= -1.77 *1046
Before I go any further, I wanted to make sure I am doing this right since I am kind of rusty. If anyone could check, it would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance!
