pls help me solve this problem..
charges of +2.0, 3.0 and -8.0µC are placed at the vertices of an equilateral triangle of a side 10 cm. Calculate the magnitude of the force acting on the -8µC charge due to the other two charges.
Add the vector sum of
applied 60 degrees apart.
k is the Coulomb constant,
There will be an attraction force in a direction between the two other points of the triangle. It will not bisect the angle, because the forces are unequal.
