Three spiders are resting on the vertices of a triangular web. The sides of the triangular web have a length of a = 0.66 m, as depicted in the figure. Two of the spiders (S1 and S3) have +7.8 µC charge, while the other (S2) has −7.8 µC charge. (a) What are the magnitude and direction of the net force on the third spider (S3)?(b) Suppose the third spider (S3) moves to the origin. Would the net force on the third spider (S3) be greater than, less than, or equal to the magnitude found in part (a)? (c) What are the magnitude and direction of the net force on the third spider (S3) when it is resting at the at the origin?
