A point charge ( g at the end of an insulating string of length 55 cm is observed to be in equillibrium in a uniform horizontal electric field of N/C, when the pendulum's position is as shown in Fig. 21-63, with the charge 12 cm above the lowest (vertical) position. If the field points to the right in Fig. 21-63, determine the magnitude and sign of the point charge. Solution: E θ L =5 5 cm Ty θ m ,Q Fel Fg 12 cm Tx For equillibrium : . , and ), tan tan ) Calculate tan using the Pythagoras theorem: / / tan / C...
