(Fig. 1) Four identical, positive point charges, each carrying charge Q = 3 . 0 nC, are placed at the corners of a square of side 2 L , where L = 10 cm. The square lies in the XYplane with its centre at the origin. What would be the magnitude and direction of the resultant electric force on a point charge q = 2 . 0 nC if it were placed (a) at S , the midpoint of one of the four sides? (b) at a point P (0 , ,L ) on the Zaxis? 2. (Fig. 2) Positive point charges Q , 2 Q , 3 Q , ... , 12 Q are affixed at the positions of the numbers 1, 2, 3, ... , 12, respectively, on a circular clockface of radius R = 10 cm. If Q = 1 . C, what is the electric field (magnitude and direction) at the centre of the circle? (Hint: Consider pairs ofthe electric field (magnitude and direction) at the centre of the circle?...
