a.the force on a neutron placed at that point.

b.the force on a proton placed at that point.

c.the force on an electron placed at that point.

d.the force on a hydrogen molecule placed at that point.


Homework Equations



This is really a conceptual question.

The Attempt at a Solution



It would be choice B. because a positively charged particle's force is in the same direction of the electric field, right?

Thanks again.
