Question: Part A A charge of 9.00 mC is placed at each corner of a square 0.500 m on a side.
Determine the magnitude of the force on each charge.

Step 1

We have four charges q1, q, q3 and q4 having magnitude 9.00 mC are placed on four corners of the square. Force on each charge is equal because their magnitude is same. Suppose we are calculating force on charge q1 due to remaining charges. Charges q2 and q4 are at the distance 0.500m from charge q1. Charge q3 is diagonally opposite to charge q1. So, it is at distance √2 times 0.500m.

Step 2


Step 3


Magnitude of Force between charges q1...
