Three charged particles are placed at each of threecorners of an equilateral triangle whose sides are oflength 3.7 cm. Two of the particles have anegative charge: q1 = -8.3 nC and q2 = -16.6 nC.The remaining particle has a positive charge, q3 =8.0 nC. What is the net electric force acting onparticle 3 due to particle 1 and particle 2? Find the net force EF3 acting on particle 3 due to the presence of the other two particles. Report you answer as amagnitude EF3 and a direction 0 measured from the positive x axis.

Three charged particles are placed at each of three
corners of an equilateral triangle whose sides are of
length 3.7 cm. Two of the particles have a
negative charge: q1 = -8.3 nC and q2 = -16.6 nC.
The remaining particle has a positive charge, q3 =
8.0 nC. What is the net electric force acting on
particle 3 due to particle 1 and particle 2?
