Three point charges,+5.5 μC, +1.6 μC, and
-2.5 μC, lie along the x-axis at 0 cm, 2.5 cm,
and 5.2 cm, respectively.
What is the force exerted on q1 by the other
two charges? (To the right is positive.) The
Coulomb constant is 8.99 × 109 N · m2/C2.
Answer in units of N.

010 (part 2 of 3) 10.0 points
What is the force exerted on q2 by the other
two charges? (To the right is positive.)
Answer in units of N.

011 (part 3 of 3) 10.0 points
What is the force exerted on q3 by the other
two charges? (To the right is positive.)
