## Question:

What is the force on the charge in newtons located at {eq}x = +8.00 \ cm {/eq} in part (a) of the figure below given that {eq}q = 5.00 \ \mu C ?{/eq} (The positive direction is to the right.)

## Coulomb Force:

The Coulomb force is an electrostatic force between two charged particles. The Coulomb force is proportional to the product of the charge of one particle and that of another and is inversely proportional to the separation of between them squared.
