## Homework Statement

Hey everyone, i have a homework question i'm completely stuck on.

Coulomb Vector Force

Q1= 20nC

Q2= -96nC

Q3= +250 nC

A(y axis)= .30 meters

B(x axis)= .40 meters

Layout:

Q1

.

.A

.

.

Q2--------Q3

B

Calculate:

Vector force F21 on Q1 due to Q2

Vector force F31 on Q1 due to Q3

Net Vector force F1 on Q1

Net electric field seen by Q1

Next to each of these questions is a F

_{x}= x+ y

E (Net Electric Field)

The x and y's each have a carrot over them.

i know coulombs law comes into play here: F=k(q1q2)/(r

^{2})

Any insight on this problem would be extremely welcome. I had to miss a week of class so i'm trying to learn this stuff on my own. Unfortunately i can't find it in my book.

Thank you. And im glad i found this forum. I'm a physics major right now but probably transferring schools to go into meteorology. I'm sure this place will be a vital tool (hopefully not to just get help on homework problems)
