2 1. Three point charges are fixed at the corners of a right-angled triangle (see figure below). The charges and distances are given in the figure. a. Find the electric force, magnitude and direction, acting on the -0.6- μ C charge due to the +0.8- μ C charge alone . (10) b. Find the electric potential at the mid-point between the +0.8- μ C charge and the -0.6- μ C charge due to all three charges. (15) c. Can the electric field due to all three charges be zero somewhere along the dotted line between the +0.8- μ C charge and the +1.0- μ C? (8) Solution a. The electric force on the -0.6- μ C charge due to the +0.8- μ C charge is 9 2 2 6 6 1 2 2 2 (8.99 10 / ) (0.6 10 ) (0.8 10 ) 0.7 (0.08 ) kq q N m C C C F N d m - - × × × × × = = = The direction is vertically up (+y) because it is an attractive force on the -0.6- μ C charge. b.
