A +5 microcoulomb charge experiences a .55 N force in the positive y direction. If this charge is replaced with a -2.7 microcoulomb charge, find the magnitude of the force in this case.

  • physics -

    The force magnitude will get multiplied by a factor 2.7/5 = 0.54, making it 0.297 N, and the direction will reverse
