16. The net field components along the x and y axes are E net x = q 1 4 πε o R 2 q 2 cos θ 4 πε o R 2 , E net y = – q 2 sin θ 4 πε o R 2 . The magnitude is the square root of the sum of the components-squared. Setting the magnitude equal to E = 2.00 × 10 5 N/C, squaring and simplifying, we obtain E 2 = q 1 2 + q 2 2 2 q 1 q 2 cos θ 16 π 2 ε o 2 R 4 . With R = 0.500 m,
