Matt forgot to put the fabric softener in the wash. As his socks tumbled in the dryer, they became charged. If a small piece of lint with a charge of +1.25 E -19 C is attracted to the socks by a force of 3.0 E -9 N, what is the magnitude of the electric field at this location?

Suppose an electric field with a magnitude of 2.8 E 4 N/C at a certain location, points due south. If a charge of -4.0 E -6 C is brought to the location, what is the electrostatic force that acts on this charge?

force=qE
