Four point charges are at the corners of a square of side "a" as shown in figure 15.8 (see below). Determine the magnitude and direction of the resultant electric force on q, with ke, q, and a left in symbolic form.

|dw:1370373601482:dw| and all charges are positive.

First of all the force on charge q due to charge 2q will be \[2\times2q _{^{2}}\] divide by a2 Then as we all know the diagonal of a square is \[\sqrt{2}a\] so accordingly we will take the distance as the value of the diagonal and put the formula for coulomb's force . Then we will add the values
