FIGURE shows four electric charges located at the comers of a rectangle. Like charges, you will recall, repel each other while opposite charges attract. Charge B exerts a repulsive force (directly away from B) on charge A of 3.0 N. Charge C exerts an attractive force (directly toward C) on charge A of 6.0 N. Finally, charge D exerts an attractive force of 2.0 N on charge A. Assuming that forces are vectors, what are the magnitude and direction of the net force exerted on charge A?
Step 1 of 7
We are required to calculate the magnitude and direction of the net force exerted on charge A
