Two point charges of 2.0 nC and 6.0 nC are both located 1.0 m away from a third charge of 3.0 nC ("n" is the metric prefix "nano" and means 10^-9) as shown. What is the electric force (magnitude and direction) on the 3.0 nC charge?

O 2.0 nC

  • Physics -

    The 3.0 nC charge experiences a force up of k*6*3*10^-18 N and a force to the left of
    k*2*3*10^-18 N
    k is the Coulomb constant.
    Add the two forces as vectors.
