The question is
Three-point charges are placed at the corner of a right-angle triangle as shown. Calculate the magnitude of the net electric force on the object X  marked X due to the other two charges.

I am having trouble finding the magnitude for this question, would you mind helping me, Thanks a lot for your help.

You forgot to include the images Grinning Face with Smiling Eyes

I found a similar question, and solved it for you instead. Feel free to upload the actual image if it happens to be different.

That is the magnitude, what's highlighted. Magnitude is what you report without an angle. Do you mean you also need the angle?

Yes that is what I mean. would you mind writing the degree answer with the magnitude together?

Sure:

tan(theta)=opp/adj=0.4/0.3

now take the inverse tan of 0.4/0.3

tan^(-1) (0.4/0.3) = 53.1 degrees

Unless you have something else in mind?

Oh... 53.1 degrees is the same as 36.9 east of north OR 53.1 north of east
