Charges in a plane Determine the magnitude and direction of the net electrostatic force on q 1 . Step 1. Determine individual forces on q 1 and draw free body diagram (Note the coordinate system) q 2 attracts q 1 - F 12 q 3 attracts q 1 - F 13 Force F 12 has x and y components!

Charges in a plane F 12 = k | q 1 || q 2 | r 12 2 = (8.99 E 9 Nm 2 / C 2 ) (4.0 E 6 C )(6.0 E 6 C ) (0.15 m ) 2 = 9.6 N F 13 = k | q 1 || q 3 | r 13 2 = (8.99 E 9 Nm 2 / C 2 ) (4.0 E 6 C )(5.0 E 6 C ) (0.1 m ) 2 = 18 N Step 2. Determine magnitude of individual forces on q 1 F 12 = (9.6 N )cos(73 ° ) ˆ i
