Magnitude and Direction Assignment | Professional Writing Services
Three charged particles are fixed in place at the corners of an equilateral triangle with side length 1.0 meters. (The triangle is oriented with its bottom edge aligned east-west.) The particle at the apex of the triangle (north) has a charge of +2.0 nC and the particles at the base (south) each have a charge of -2.0 nC.
A 1 nanogram, +3.0 nC test charge, free to move, is introduced 0.5 meters to the south of the center of the bottom edge. Address the following questions: a) What is the electrostatic potential at the location of the test charge? b) What is the electric field at the location of the test charge? Give magnitude and direction. c) What is the work required, for an external agent to bring the test charge to this location, from infinity? d) What is the acceleration of the test charge? Give magnitude and direction. (Hint: use one or more of your results from above.)
