Three positive particles of charges Q = 61.8 micro coulombs are located at the corners of an equilateral triangle with a side L = 16.3cm. Calculate the magnitude of the net force on each particle.

Solution Preview

Use Coulomb's Law to get the force exerted by one charge on the other:

F = k * q1 * q2 / d^2

F is the magnitude of the force. The direction of the force on what particle is in the opposite direction of the other particle when the charges are of the same sign.

k is Coulomb's constant--9 * 10^9 Newton meters^2 /
Coulomb^2
q1 and q2 are equal and so are 61.8 * ...

Solution Summary

This solution calculates the magnitude of the net force on three positive particles that have charges of Q=61.8 micro coulombs, adhering to the equilateral triangle's side L=16.3cm.

Consider a pair of forces, one having a magnitude of 20 N, and the other having a magnitude of 12 N. What maximum netforce is possible for these two forces? What is the minimum netforce possible?

A force of magnitude 100N is directed N, and a second force of 200N 30 degrees East of North. Find the magnitude and direction of the third force that when added to the first two force gives a resultant where magnitude is zero.

A force is applied to the end of a 2ft long uniform board weighing 50lbs, in order to keep it horizontal, while it pushes against a wall at the left. If the angle the force makes with the board is 30 degrees, the magnitude of the applied force F is...

Airplane flight recorders must be able to survive catastrophic crashes. Therefore, they are typically encased in crash-resistant steel or titanium boxes that are subjected to rigorous testing. One of the test is an impact shock test, in which the box must survive being thrown at high speeds against a barrier. A 41-kg box is thro

Consider a force F acting on a particle that moves with a velocity v for F=(6N)i - (5N)j and v = (-5 m/s)i + (4 m/s)j
-What are the magnitudes of F and v?

A. A claw hammer is used to pull a nail out of a board. The nail is at a 60 degree angle of to the board, and a force F1 of magnitude 500N applied to the nail is required to pull it from the board. The hammer head contacts the board at point A, which is 0.080m from where the nail enters the board. A horizontal force F2 is appl

A 292 kg motorcycle is accelerating up along a ramp that is inclined 30 degrees above the horizontal. The propulsion force pushing the motorcycle up the ramp is 3150 N and air resistance produces a force of 250 N that opposes the motion.
What is the magnitude of the motorcycle's acceleration?
