Identical point charges Q are placed at each of the four corners of a rectangle measuring 2.03 m by 3.39 m. If Q = 34.9 μC, what is the magnitude of the electrostatic force on any one of the charges?

Now, write \( F_{12} \) for the force of charge \( Q_2 \) on \( Q_1 \). By Coulomb's law it is \[ F_{12} = \frac{Q_1Q_2}{4 \pi \epsilon_0 d_{12}^2 } \]

OK, I have a drawing and labelled. In the formula, is that the equivalent of kQ1Q2/r^2

Now \( F_{12} \) is in the negative y direction; \( F_{14} \) is in the positive x direction; and \( F_{13} \) in the diagonal direction given. Write all of that out in vector notation and then find the magnitude of the sum of the three vectors. Then by symmetry, the magnitude of the charge on the other three points is the same.
