Question: please help i dont even know where to start i...

Question details

Problem 4 (7 points). The figure below shows the positions of two α particles(each alpha particle (a) has a charge +2e) and an electron. a) Draw a clear and neat free-body diagram for either sphere at equilibrium. (2 points) b) Determine the magnitude and direction of the resultant force on the electron. Hint: Choose the +-axis along the line from the electron to the right-hand α particle.) (4 points) c) Determine the acceleration of the electron due to the net force acting on i. The mass of the electron is e-9.11x10 kg. (1 point) 3.50 x 10v 2.10 x 1010 m

Please help! I don't even know where to start. I know to do the sum of the forces in both directions but I'm not sure how that translates with the angle!
