Three charged particles are placed at each of three corners of an equilateral triangle whose sides are of length 2.0 cm . Two of the particles have a negative charge: q1= -6.1 nC and q2 = -12.2 nC . The remaining particle has a positive charge, q3 = 8.0 nC. What is the net electric force acting on particle 3 due to particle 1 and particle 2?

Find the net force ΣF⃗ 3 acting on particle 3 due to the presence of the other two particles. Report you answer as a magnitude ΣF3 and a direction θ measured from the positive x axis.

Express the magnitude in newtons and the direction in degrees to three significant figures.
