Chapter 21, Problem 21.48E

A point charge *q*_{1} = −4.00 nC is at the point *x* = 0.600 m, *y* = 0.800 m, and a second point charge *q*_{2} = +6.00 nC is at the point *x* = 0.600 m, *y* = 0. Calculate the magnitude and direction of the net electric field at the origin due to these two point charges.
