Two particles are fixed on an x axis. Particle 1 of charge 47.9 μC is located at x = -5.87 cm; particle 2 of charge Q is located at x = 32.3 cm. Particle 3 of charge magnitude 52.8 μC is released from rest on the y axis at y = 15.1 cm. What is the value of Q if the initial acceleration of particle 3 is in the positive direction of (a) the x axis and (b) the y axis?
