A +5.0 μC charge experiences a 0.44−N force in the positive y direction. If this charge is replaced with a − 2.7μCcharge, what force will it experience?
Step 1 of 3</p>
Here we need to calculate the force experienced by a , when it is placed at the place of a charge , which was experiencing a electrostatic force .
Electric field at that point where charges are placed,
Force exerted on charge ,
Step 2 of 3</p>To calculate the electric field at point where charges are placed, using the initial charge and force on it.
Electric field strength is the force exerted by the charge at point per unit charge. That is force per unit charge.
Where E is the electric field strength, F is the force and q is the charge.
Substituting and in above equation,
