43. (a) The magnitude of the force on the particle is given by F = qE , where q is the magnitude of the charge carried by the particle and E is the magnitude of the electric field at the location of the particle. Thus, E F q == × × 30 10 20 10 15 10 6 9 3 . . . N C NC . The force points downward and the charge is negative, so the field points upward. (b) The magnitude of the electrostatic force on a proton is () ( ) 19 3 16 1.60 10 C 1.5 10 N C
