Electric Field on Line Connecting Point Charges (1) Consider the x -component of the electric field. Electric field at point P 1 : E = E 1 + E 2 = kq 1 (7m) 2 + kq 2 (3m) 2 = 1 . 47N / C + 12 . 0N / C = 13 . 5N / C . Electric field at point P 2 : E = E 1 + E 2 = kq 1 (3m) 2 - kq 2 (1m) 2 = 7 . 99N / C - 108N / C = - 100N / C . 2 0 1 3 2 4 5 6 7 x [m] 2 P 1 P q = +8nC 1 q =+12nC 8/1/2008 [tsl19 – 1/3]
