Three charges are located on the +x axis as follows: q1= 25µC at x=0. q2=11µC at x= 2.0m, and q3 =45µC at x=3.5m (a) Find the electrostatic force (magnitude and direction) acting on q2 (b) Suppose q2 were -11µC, rather than +11µC. Without performing any detailed calculations, specify the magnitude and direction of the force exerted on q2. Give reasoning.

now in the another part think your self and try to do your self.....Hint q2 is negative direction and q3 as well as q1 is positive charge hence there will be attraction between q1 and q2 and also attraction force between q2 and q3 .. but both will be in opposite direction hence the net force will be in the direction of that attraction force which will be more powerful between them.. and its magnitude will be same as in (a) part...one thin should be in your mind that magnitude never will be negative hence take modulus of this net force for calculation of magnitude..
