a-charge-of-2-65-nc-is-placed-at-the-origin-of-an-xy-coordinate-system-and-a-charge-of-2-10-nc-is-pa810

A charge of -2.65 nC is placed at the origin of an

`xy`

-coordinate system, and a charge of 2.10 nC is placed on the

`y`

axis at

`y=3.80cm`

. If a third charge, of 5.00 nC , is now placed at the point

`x=2.80cm,y=3.80`

cm find the the total force (magnitude and direction) exerted on this charge by the other two charges. Answer:

`3.38^(**)10^(-3)N,43`

degrees from X -axis at 25.9 deg below the +x -axis) Hide question 11 feedback Combine the x component of the force from q 2 with the x component for q 1 to get the net force in x . Do the same for

`y`
