Physics 222 Fall 2011 Quiz 1 (Solutions for A, B and C) Three charged particles are placed at the corners of an equilateral triangle of side 1.20 m. The charges are C, 0 . 8 C, 0 . 4 μ - + and C. 0 . 6 - Calculate the magnitude and direction of the net force on charge C 0 . 4 + . Solution The forces on each charge lie along a line connecting the charges. Let the variable d represent the length of a side of the triangle. Since the triangle is equilateral, each angle is 60 o . First calculate the magnitude of each individual force.
