Two point charges are placed on the x axis as follows: Charge q1= +4.00 nC is located at x= 0.200 m, and charge q2= +5.00nC is at x= -0.300 m. What are the magnitude and direction of the net force exerted by these two charges on a negative point charge q3= -0.600 nC placed at the origin?

  • physics -

    Use Coulomb's law and add the two forces on q3 as vectors. Charges q1 and q2 pull q3 in opposite directions, because they are on opposite sides of q3. .
