1 Three point charges lie at the vertices of an equilateral triangle as shown. All three charges have the same magnitude, but Charges #1 and #2 are positive (+ q ) and Charge #3 is negative (– q ). The net electric force that Charges #2 and #3 exert on Charge #1 is in A. the + x -direction. B. the – x -direction. C. the + y -direction. D. the –y- direction.

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
