Two equal negative charge on 9 nC each are in the water (ε = 81) at a distance of 8 inches apart. Determine the strength and potential of the field at a point located at a distance of 5 cm from the charges

Do the potential first. It is easy because you can add potentials due to each charge without doing any geometry.

V = 2 * [ q/ (4 pi eo r ) ]

for each E field you must first find the E vector away from each charge and multiply by the cosine of the angle between that and the direction perpendicular to the line between the charges

Draw the triangle

base 8, legs 5

half the base = 4

right triangles, 3, 4 ,5

cos A = 3/5

so

E = 2 [ q/(4 pi eo r^2)](3/5)
