How would you actually do this? Well, define E2 to be on the x-axis, so $E_{2(x)}=E_2$$E_{2(y)}=0$ And$E_{1(x)}=E_1\cos(60)$$E_{1(y)}=E_1\sin(60)$Add the x and y components

$E=\frac{F}{q}=\frac{Qk}{r^2}$

theree charges are at the corners of an equilateral triangle as shown in fig below , calculte the electric feild at the position of tha 2.00 micro colum charge due to the 7.00 micro columb and -4.00 micro columb charges.(b) use ur answer to detrmine the force on the 2.00 m|dw:1349627210442:dw|icro columb chare.

calculationx?

+ve direction=right E1x=$\frac{-4* (9*10^9)}{r^2}$ E2x=$\frac{7* (9*10^9)}{r^2} cos(60)$ E2y=$\frac{7* (9*10^9)}{r^2} sin(60)$

force?

14. henpen

$E=F/q$Multiply by the charge Sorry! In my earlier calculations it should have been MICRO coulombs- multiply each by 10^-6!

15. henpen

*Multiply E field by the charge to get force
