Electric field:

$\overline{){\mathbf{E}}{\mathbf{=}}\frac{\mathbf{k}\mathbf{q}}{{\mathbf{r}}^{\mathbf{2}}}}$, where k is Coulomb constant, q is a charge, and r is the distance between the charge to the point where the electric field is to be calculated.

Let's visualize our problem in the figure below: We need to note that:

E1 = E2sinθ
