Force (F1) on q due to 4Q is along the diagonal and hence needs to be split into its components to be added, since \[\theta=45degrees\] the components are \[F_1Sin\theta, F_1Cos\theta\]\[F_1sin45,F_1Cos45\]along Y and X axis respectively. Force(F2) on q due to Q on the left is along the ve x axis, and the Force (F3) on q due to Q (right bottom corner) is along the ve Y axis. (STEP I) find the net forces in the X and Y directions\[F_X andF_Y\] (STEP II) Use \[F_{net}=\sqrt(F_X^2+F_Y^2)\]
