Answer:F’ = (3/2)F

Explanation:the formula for the electric field strength is given as follows:

E = F/qwhere,

E = Electric Field Strength

F = Force due to the electric field

q = magnitude of charge experiencing the force

Therefore,

F = E q —————- equation (1)Now, if we half the electric field strength and make the magnitude of charge triple its initial value. Then the force will become:

F’ = (E/2)(3 q)F’ = (3/2)(E q)using equation (1)

F’ = (3/2)F
