Coulomb Force in One Dimension (1) Find net force on charge q 0 due to charges q 1 and q 2 . Consider x -component of force. F 0 = + k | q 1 q 0 | (3 . 5 m ) 2 - k | q 2 q 0 | (1 . 5 m ) 2 = +3 . 67 × 10 - 7 N - 7 . 99 × 10 - 7 N = - 4 . 32 × 10 - 7 N . Find net force on charge q 2 due to charges q 1 and q 0 . F 2 = - k | q 1 q 2 | (2 . 0 m ) 2 + k | q 2 q 0 | (1 . 5 m ) 2 = - 5 . 62 × 10 - 7 N + 7 . 99 × 10 - 7 N = +2 . 37 × 10 - 7 N . 8/1/2008 [tsl5 – 1/5]
