1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data Two charged beads are on the plastic ring in Figure (a). Bead 2, which is not shown, is fixed in place on the ring, which has radius R = 63.3 cm. Bead 1 is initially on the x axis at angle θ = 0o. It is then moved to the opposite side, at angle θ = 180o, through the first and second quadrants of the xy coordinate system. Figure (b) gives the x component of the net electric field produced at the origin by the two beads as a function of θ, and Figure (c) below gives the y component. The vertical axis scales are set by Exs = 5.80 × 104 N/C and Eys = -10.44 × 104N/C. (a) At what positive angle θ is bead 2 located? (Note: bead 2 is negative charged). What are the charges of (b) bead 1 and (c) bead 2? 2. Relevant equations E = k (Q/R^2) 3. The attempt at a solution I understand Part 1. I realize that bead 2 must be located at +270 degrees. Because of this fact, we know that @180 degrees the only field acting on the origin in the X direction is from Bead 1. The same applies for the y-direction in @180 and 0 degrees with Q2 being the only field acting on it. So, for the Q1 I did as follows: @180 Ex = 5.8E4 = k (Q1/R^2) Q1 = (5.8E4)(1/k)(R^2) Q1 = (5.8E4)(1/8.99E9)(.633^2) Q1 = 2.58E-6 C For Q2 @0 Ey = 4 (-10.44E4 / 9) = -4.64E4 = k (Q2/R^2) Q2 = (-4.64E4)(1/8.99E9)(.633^2) Q2 = -2.07E-6 C WileyPlus is asking for it in uC so I just changed both from E-6 to E-12. I'm not getting the correct answer, where am I making a mistake? I'm starting to think this problem isn't as straightforward as I had assumed, although the solution I was given from the book is pretty much the same to as what I've done.
