A charge of -3.00 µC is fixed at the center of a compass. Two additional charges are fixed on the circle of the compass (radius = 0.135 m). The charges on the circle are -3.20 µC at the position due north and +5.00 µC at the position due east. What is the magnitude and direction of the net electrostatic force acting on the charge at the center? Specify the direction relative to due east (0°).
assume the charges don't move. Work this as a vector problem. Find the force S due to the center charge and the N charge, and the Force E due to the center charge and the E charge. Add those as vectors
