Question

Three charges are arranged as shown in the figure below. Find the magnitude and direction of the electrostatic force on the charge q = 4.76 nC at the origin. (Let r12 = 0.240 m.)

Three point charges lie along the axes in the x y-coordinate plane.
Positive charge q is at the origin.
A charge of 6.00 nC is at (r1 2, 0), where r1 2 > 0.
A charge of −3.00 nC is at (0, −0.100 m). help_outlineImage TranscriptioncloseThree charges are arranged as shown in the figure below.

Step 1

Magnitude of force on q due to charge q1 = 6.00 nC is,

Step 2

Magnitude of force on q due to charge q2 = -3.00 nC is,

Step 3

Magnitude of net electrostatic force F ...
