Electric field:

$\overline{){\mathbf{E}}{\mathbf{=}}\frac{\mathbf{k}\mathbf{q}}{{\mathbf{r}}^{\mathbf{2}}}}$

(A) E1 = kq/r2 = (9.0 × 109)(-5.0 × 10-9)/(0.022) = -112500 N/C j

E2 = kq/r2 = (9.0 × 109)(10.0 × 10-9)/(0.042) = -56250 N/C i ###### Problem Details What are the strength and direction of the electric field at the position indicated by the dot in figure (Figure 1)

A) Give your answer in terms of the horizontal and vertical components. Take the positive directions to be up and to the right.
