Total electrical force

I am modelling a comb drive from a MEMS device.  The device consists of two charged combs which interlock.  I'm using a 2D mesh on this model, and was looking to find the net electrical force (magnitude and direction) on one of the combs due to the charges on the other.  I have run a simulation, and have the nodal force values, but is there a way to compute a vector sum of all of these forces on one part? 


I would attach a file, but the file size is very large.
