The charges and coordinates of two charged particles held fixed in an xy plane are q1 = 2.32 μC, x1 = 3.08 cm, y1 = 0.793 cm and q2 = -3.14 μC, x2 = -1.75 cm, y2 = 1.05 cm. At what (a)x and (b)y coordinates should a third particle of charge q3 = 5.72 μC be placed such that the net electrostatic force on particle 2 due to particles 1 and 3 is zero?
