Three charged particles are located at the corners of an equilateral triangle as shown in the figure below (let *q* = 3.40 µC, and *L* = 0.890 m). Calculate the total electric force on the 7.00-µC charge.

Magnitude in Newtons?

Direction counterclockwise from the x-axis?

Step 1

Consider the charges on the corners of the equilateral triangle as *q, q _{1}, *and

The given values for the equilateral triangle are,

Step 2

Apply Coulomb’s law to calculate the electric force between the particles of charges *q* and *q _{1.}*

Step 3

Apply Coulomb’s law to calculate the electric force between the part...
