# Electrostatics: Coulomb's Force due to two charges.

Not what you're looking for?

The charges at the coordinate origin has a value of q1 8.00 x 10^-6, the other two charges have identical magnitudes, but opposite signs: q2 = -5.00 x 10^-6 and q3 = + 5.00 X 10^-6.

a) Determine the net force (magnitude and direction) exerted on q1 by the other two charges.

b) If q1 had a mass of 1.50 g and it were free to move, what would be its acceleration?

##### Solution Summary
