26.14. Model: Model the plastic spheres as point charges. Visualize: Solve: (a) The charge q 1 = 50.0 nC exerts a force 1 on 2 F G on q 2 = 50.0 nC to the right, and the charge q 2 exerts a force 2 on 1 F G on q 1 to the left.

26.16. Model: Charges A, B, and C are point charges. Visualize: Please refer to Figure EX26.16. Charge A experiences an electric force B on A F G due to charge B and an electric force C on A F G due to charge C. The force B on A F G is directed to the right and the force C on A F G is directed to the left. Solve: Coulomb’s law yields: ( )( )( ) () 92 2 9 9 5 B on A 2 2 9.0 10 N m /C 1.0 10 C 1.0 10 C 9.0 10 N 1.0 10 m F −− ×× × == × × ( )( )( ) 2 9 9 5 C on A 2 2 1.0 10 C 4.0 10 C 2.0 10 m F × × × The net force on A is ( ) ( )( ) 55 on A B on A C on A ˆˆ 0 N FF F i i =+= × + × = GG G
