Problem 15P

CE Consider the three electric charges, A, B, and C, shown in Figure 19−28. Rank the charges in order of increasing magnitude of the net force they experience. Indicate ties where appropriate.

FIGURE 19-28 Problem 15 and 16

Step-by-Step Solution:

Solution 15P

Step 1 of 3

For the given charge configuration, we need to rank the charges with the order of increasing magnitude of the net force on individual charges.

  • Coulomb’s law

According coulomb's law, the magnitude of electrostatic force between two charged particles is directly proportional to the product of the magnitude of charges and inversely proportional to the square of the distance between them.

Electrostatic force between two charges at r distance apart,
