@phi

- anonymous

I get \[(72974.5 N)\hat i\]

- anonymous

which is wrong...

- anonymous

.000392 should be the answer

8 orders of magnitude is quite an error

- anonymous

it sure is ...haha

the charges were given in nano coulombs. I converted them to coulombs.
\[q_1=+3nC=3\times 10^{-9}\]

- anonymous

k=8.99E9

- phi

First, what units is the answer given in ?

- anonymous

Newtons \hat{i}

- anonymous

maybe I read the question wrong

##### 1 Attachment

- phi

your approach is ok.
I would write down the components of each vector

- phi

the k 9e9 times 9e-9 gives 81. that still leaves a 3e-9
are you double counting the k ?

silly question...
\[F_{31}=F_{31x}+F_{31y}\]
is this true?

- anonymous

or is it
\[F_{31}=\sqrt{F_{31x}^2+F_{31y}^2}\]

- phi

ignoring the units (we can figure those out later)
the force from the top left corner is <9*3/4 i 0 j>
the force from the bottom right is < 0 i 9*3/4 j>
the force from the bottom left is < -9*3/8 * 1/sqrt(2) i - 9*3/8 *1/sqrt(2) j>
add up the components to get
27/4( 1- 1/2sqrt(2)) for both i and j components
that number is 4.3635
now to get the units 1e-18 C^2 * 9e-9 N-M^2 /C^2 * 1e4 M^2 (to fix the cm)
that factor is 9e-5
and our result is 4.3635*9e-5 = 0.0003927 N for both the i and j components

- phi

as for your "silly" question. if by F31x you mean < F31x 0> and by F31y < 0 F31y>
then yes, F31= F31x+F31y
the magnitude of F31 is as you wrote it.

- anonymous

why is
"the force from the bottom left is < -9*3/8 * 1/sqrt(2) i"
Why did you divide by 8

- phi

the distance (diagonal) is 2 sqrt(2). squared you get 4*2= 8
the 1/sqrt(2) is cos(45) (often written as sqrt(2)/2 but we don't need to write it that way)

- phi

your 2.8 was just an approximation

- phi

I think the resultant force vector is
< 0.0003927 i 0.0003927 j>
with a magnitude of 0.000555 N pointing in the opposite direction of the diagonal

- anonymous

Yep that's correct...I'm still trying to make sense of it...one second...

- anonymous

\[(9\cdot 3 \cdot\frac 14+(-9)3\cdot \frac 18 \cdot \frac 1{\sqrt2})\hat i\] and for \hat j as well
Yep that makes sense

- anonymous

what happened to k

- phi

I was ignoring the constants and units, just to get a rough idea of what is going on. I see that both the i and j components are positive and equal to each other.
but obviously you have to multiply every term by k, and by 1e-9 (twice! to change nC to C)
and by 1e4 cm^2 per meter^2 to get the units correct.

- anonymous

Oh I see

- phi

if we use 8.99e9 for k, we match the book's answer 0.000392

- anonymous

shoot me....I continue to get .0000082137
\[\frac{(8.99\times10^9N\cdot m^2/C^2)(9\times10^{-9}C)(3\times10^{-9}C)}{0.04m^2}\]\[-\frac{(8.99\times10^9N\cdot m^2/C^2)(-9\times10^{-9}C)(3\times10^{-9}C)(\frac 1{\sqrt{2}})}{0.08m^2}\]

- anonymous

\[\frac{(8.99\times10^9N\cdot m^2/C^2)(9\times10^{-9}C)(3\times10^{-9}C)}{0.04m^2}\]-\[-\frac{(8.99\times10^9N\cdot m^2/C^2)(-9\times10^{-9}C)(3\times10^{-9}C)(\frac 1{\sqrt{2}})}{\sqrt0.08m^2}\]

- phi

First, I would not write down that expression. I would write down the 3 individual vectors (with components i and j even if 0)
Second, your distance squared should be written \( (2e{-2}\ m)^2\)= \( 4e{-4}\ m^2\)

- phi

and \( 2 \sqrt{2} \) cm squared is written as 8e-4 m^2

- anonymous

finally!!!1

- phi

Good.
