A charge of 1.6 x 10-10C is placed in a uniform electric field of intensity 2.0 x 105 NC-1. calculate the magnitude of the electric force exerted on the change

A. 3.2 x 105N
B. 1.8 x 105N
C. 3.2 x 10-5N
D. 1.8 x 10-5N

Correct Answer: Option C

C. 3.2 x 10-5N

Explanation

F = Exq = 2.0 x 105 x 1.6 x 10-10

= 3.2 x 10-5N
