Three charged particles lie on the y-axis and are seperated by a distance d=3.0 cm as shown in the grapgh. Charges q1=5uC, and q2=6uC are fixed in place. The total force on q3 is 1000N.
a)Assume that q3 is positive. The goal will be to find the value of q3. Start by writing an expression for the force on q3 due to q1. Include the direction.
b) Write an expression for th force on q3 due to q2. Include the direction.
c)Using the two expressions above and the fact that the net force is 500N, calculate the value of q3.
d)What will be the electric field vetor E due to the charges q1 and q2?
e) Draw the electric field lines on the diagram on the diagram produced by the charges q1 and q2 only.
