Name_____________________________________ Electric Fields 1) A 5.0µC (micro-Coulolmbs) point charge is at the origin, and a -2.0µC point charge is on the x-axis at (3,0)m, as in the diagram. (a) Determine the net electric field strength at point P. (b) If a -1.5μC point charge is placed at point P. What is the electrostatic force acting on the new charge. (c) Why is the electrostatic force acting on the new charge in the opposite direction of the electric field? X (m) - + (3,0) . P (0,4)
