## Homework Statement

A point charge q = 4.9 \mu C is placed at each corner of an equilateral triangle with sides 0.20 m in length.

Is the magnitude of the electric field at the center of the triangle greater than, less than, or the same as the magnitude at the midpoint of a side? Explain.

## Homework Equations

E = q/r^2

## The Attempt at a Solution

I found the magnitude of the midpoint of the triangle to be 1.5e6 but I am not sure how to explain this in words. Any guidance would be appreciated!
