#1 The three charges are at the three vertices of a right triangle as shown in the figure below.

q 1 = + 3.0 µC q 2 = - 3 .0 µC q 3 = - 2 .0 µC 1 µC = 10-6

Right Triangle: q1 to q2 = 5.0m/ q1 to q3 = 3.0m / q2 to q3 = 4.0m

Formulas: K = 9.0 X 10 9 N m2/ C2 Fx = F cos θ Fy = F sin θ

a) Calculate the force acting on on q 3 by q 1. Name this force F1 .

b) Calculate the force acting on q 3 by q 2 . Name this force F2.

c) Draw the force acting on q 3 by q 1 and q 2 on the figure .

b) Find the components of force F1 on X and Y-axes.

d) Find the components of force F2 on X and Y-axes.

e) Find the net force in X-direction. Fnet X =

f) Find the net force in Y-direction Fnet Y =

g) Use Pythagorean Theorem to find the resultant force acting on q 3.

h) Use tangent to find the direction (angle) the resultant makes with horizontal.
