As we learned

Principle of Super Position -

It states that total force acting on a given charge due to number of charges is the Vector sum of the individual force acting on that charge due to all the charges.

- wherein

 

 Net force on     BF_{net}=\sqrt{F_{A}^{2}+F_{C}^{2}}  

\\*F_{A}=\frac{15\times 12}{(3)^{2}}=20\, dyne,\; F_{C}=\frac{12\times 20}{(4)^{2}}=15\, dyne\\*\Rightarrow F_{net}=\sqrt{F_{A}^{2}+F_{C}^{2}}=\sqrt{(20)^{2}+(15)^{2}}=25dyne

 


Option 1)

125\; \; dynes\;

Option 2)

\; 35\; \; dynes\;

Option 3)

\; 25\; \; dynes\;

Option 4)

\; Zero
