Problem: Two point charges of +60.0 μC and -12.0 μC are separated by a distance of 20.0 cm. A +7.00 μC charge is placed midway between these two charges. What is the electric force acting on this charge because of the other two charges? A) 4.53 N directed towards the positive charge B) 453 N directed towards the negative charge C) 4.53 N directed towards the negative charge D) 453 N directed towards the positive charge
