Panicle A of charge 3.00 × 10−4 C is at the origin, particle B of charge −6.00 × 10−4 C is at (4.00 m, 0), and panicle C of charge 1.00 × 10−4 C is at (0, 3.00 m). (a) What is the x-component of the electric force exerted by A on C? (b) What is the y-component of the force exerted by A on C? (c) Find the magnitude of the force exerted by B on C. (d) Calculate the x-component of the force exerted by B on C. (e) Calculate the y-component of the force exerted by B on C. (f) Sum the two x-components to obtain the resultant x-component of the electric force acting on C. (g) Repeat part (f) for the y-component. (h) Find the magnitude and direction of the resultant electric force acting on C.

(a)

To determine
The x component of electric force exerted by A on C.

Explanation

Given info: The charges are qA=3.00×104C and qB=6.00×104C . The charges are placed at origin and (4.00 m, 0) respectively. The charge qC=1

(b)

To determine
The y component of electric force exerted by A on C.

(c)

To determine
The magnitude of electric force exerted by B on C.

(d)

To determine
The x component of electric force exerted by B on C.

(e)

To determine
The y component of electric force exerted by B on C.

(f)

To determine
The resultant x component of electric force on C.

(g)

To determine
The resultant y component of electric force on C.

(h)

To determine
The resultant electric force on C.
