Two 10 cm diameter charged rings face each other, 20 cm apart. The left ring is charged to -20 nC and the right ring is charged to +20 nC.

What is the force on a 1.2 nC charge placed at the midpoint?

I have already calculated the electric field between the two rings to be 25723.87 N/C to the left. However, I don't know how to use the rings as point charges to solve the second problem.

  1. You say you know the field. It should be along the axis of the rings. Just multiply it by the charge to get the force
