Three Point charges have equal magnitudes, two being positive and one negative. These charges are fixed to the corners of an equilateral triangle. As the drawing shows(a) The charge at any one corner experiences forces from the charges at the other corners. Do the individual forces exerted by the charges have the same or different magnitudes? (b) At which one or more corners does (do) the charge(s) experience a net force that has the greatest magnitude? (c) At which one or more corners does (do) the charge(s) experience a net force that has the smallest magnitude?
