Let q1 be the initial charge, F1 be the force on this charge, E be electric field present in the region, q2 be the new charge, and F2 be the force on this charge.
Write the expression to find the electric field in the region.
=(0.576j) N5μC
=(0.114×106j) NC
Write the expression for the force on the new charge.
=0.3078j N
The magnitude of the force is 0.3078 N and it will be in negative y-direction.
