## Homework Statement

Consider the system shown to the right. Particles 1 and 2 are fixed in place while particle three is placed at the location shown and released.

- Let’s look at the mechanics of q3, which has a mass of 3.00 X 10-5 kg.

- What will be the net force on q3?

- What will be q3’s acceleration?

- Can you use the acceleration equation [x(t)=1/2at^2+v0t+x0] to predict where q3 will be after 0.50 seconds? Explain.

- What will be the net force on q3?

- Project: You al make a spreadsheet that graphs q3’s position vs. time. Here are the requirements:

- Spreadsheet accurately models the movement of particle 3.

- You can adjust the magnitude and sign of each of the charges.

- You can adjust the initial position and mass of q3 (including to the left or right of both charges or right in the middle).

- Spreadsheet accurately models the movement of particle 3.

## Homework Equations

How would i make the graph without time or any intial or final speed? do you assume that initial speed is 0?

## The Attempt at a Solution

i solved for the fnet on 3 through coulomb's law and then plugged the net force in to the equation F/M=a to find the acceleration. but i was not really sure where to go from there? I am not really wondering about the spread sheet as to what equations would i use to create a x VS t graph?
