Question: In Example 21.4, what is the net force (magnitude and direction) on charge q 1 exerted by the other two charges? Answer : The electrostatic repulsive or attractive force is directly proportional to the product of the two charges and inversely proportional to the square of the distance. Here, k is the Coulombâ€™s constant, q is the charge, and r is the distance. The free body diagram for the charge is, The magnitude of force on due to Q is, Substitute for k , for , for Q , and 0.5 m for r in the above equation. The vector form of the force is, From the figure, Substitute for , for , and for in the . Force on due to is as follows: Substitute for k , for , for , and 0.6 m for r in the above equation. The vector form of the force is,  #### You've reached the end of your free preview.
