(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

What is the the electric field at a point midway between a -7.39 uC and a +5.17 uC charge 3.32 cm apart? Take the direction towards the positive charge to be positive.

2. Relevant equations

E1=kq1/r^2

E2=kq2//r^2

E1+E2=Etotal

3. The attempt at a solution

E1=8.9E9(5.17E-6)/.0332^2

E2=8.9E9(-7.39E-6)/.0332^2

I got 4.1E7 and 5.97E7 which i added up for 1.014E8 N/C
