Problem:

A +11 nC charge is located at the origin.

Question:

What is the strength of the electric field at the position x,y (-5cm, 5cm) ?

I would think you would do this but when I try it I get the wrong answer

for x axis - E=k|q|/r2

For y axis - E=k|q|/r2

Then [itex]\sqrt{}Ex^2 + Ey^2[/itex]
