    Two point charges are located on the y-axis: one charge, q1= -2.00 nC, located at y=-0.640 m, and a second charge, q2= 3.50 nC, at the origin (y=0).

    What is the magnitude of the total force exerted by these two charges on a third charge, q3= 4.90 nC, located at y3= -0.425 m?

    What is the direction of the total force?
