- Homework Statement
- Q2 = 2 Microcoulombs Q3 = 6 Microcoulombs

The distance between Q2 and Q3 is 2 meters

Q1(+)-------------Q2(+)-------------Q3(+)

If the charge of Q2 is subjected to a resultant force of 54⋅E-3 N to the right, and the magnitude of the resultant force on Q1 is twice as large as the resultant force on Q3, determine the value of Q1 and the distance between Q1 & Q2

- Relevant Equations
- What I found till now is that F2,1 is 0.081.

Equations that I have, but I still can't resolve q1 and d

F2,1+F2,3=F2

F1,2+F1,3=−2*(F3,1+F3,2)

I need some help resolving the follow problem. I really don't know where to put the "twice as large as the resultant force on Q3" in order to build an equation.

Thank you !

Thank you !
