Homework Help: Tutorial In Introductory Physics: charge

    link to problem: http://www.csu.edu/chemistryandphysics/msabella/ccli/UpdatedLabs/physics2-calc/HW%20packet.pdf [Broken]

    I don't under part two of question two on the assignment with the Case C and D. my gut instinct tells me that they are equal, but I do not have justifacation and when I look back to part one of 2 I think that Case D would have a greater force on the +q charge.

    I know that Case A< Case B, and case C looks like 2(case A) and case D looks like (case A + Case B) so 2(case A) should be less than (case A +case B) meaning that Case D should be larger than C?
