ketz Group Title

Use Coulomb’s Law to determine the magnitude and direction of the electric field EB at point B in the diagram due to the two positive charges (Q = 7.0 μC). If a proton is located at point B, calculate the magnitude and direction of the force F acting on the proton.

    E1 has the same direction as r1 E2 has the same direction as r2 find the magnitudes of each field in terms of Q find the 'x' and 'y' components of each field add the 'y' components; add the x components : those sums are the components of the net field

    YEA..I WAS THINK THE 2 CHARGES WILL ADD UP ALGEBRAICALLY AND THE RESULTANT WILL HAVE EFFECT ON THE TEST CHARGE PROTON

    direction of E1 : angle is 45 so E1x = ((9E9*7E-6)/.005m) *cos(45) E1y =((9E9*7E-6)/.005m) *sin(45) (edited: now with more parentheses!!_

    @Algebraic! yep its clear on how to get E2 but the question also want the force F acting on the proton also after getting the x and y components of E1 and E 2 how will it be added

    yeah once you find the net field at a point, the force on a particle at that point is just qE, where q is the charge of the particle (the charge of a proton in this case: +e) "also after getting the x and y components of E1 and E 2 how will it be added" just add them! add the x comp of E1 and the x comp of E2, that's the x comp of the net field... repeat for y comp to find the magnitude of the net field, use sqrt( (x comp)^2 + (y comp)^2 ) to find the direction of the net field, use arctan( x comp / y comp)
