integrate the charge thru and angle. let theta begin at the bottom rotate 90 deg for all the neg charge, then from 90 to 180 for the positive charge.

E=INT kdq/r^2 where dq=Q/(pi*r/2)dTheta

integrate from 0 to PI/2, that is E for the lower charge, and it points to the center point of the quadrant (45 deg, by symettry).

Do the same for the + charge, it points away from the center of the upper quadrant.

Now add the two E components. Neat, it point downward, and has value of E*sqrt2

work that out.
