Question

A charge of -2.95 nC is placed at the origin of an x-coordinate system, and a charge of 2.05 nC is placed on the y axis at y = 4.05 cm. If a third charge, of 5.00 nC , is now placed at the point x = 3.05 cmcm , y = 4.05 cm find the x and y components of the total force exerted on this charge by the other two charges.
