1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
Two point charges (q1=+20 nC and q2=40 nC) are placed 10.0 cm apart onlong the xaxis. Where can a third charge (q3=+20 nC) be placed so that the net electrostatic force on that charge is zero?
2. Relevant equations
F=k(q1q2)/r^2
3. The attempt at a solution
It's definitely not a hard problem, I'm guessing I'm supposed to set the entire equation into equilibrium. Other than that basic concept, I really don't understand how to solve for this problem. My professor only went over calculating forces between two charges.
Thanks for any help, I could really use it. :(
