2.)F=kq1q2/r^2

3.)I tried to do F=0

K = 8.988 X 10^9 (constant)

q1 = (8 protons) X (1.602 X 10^-19) ---> (individual charge of one proton)

q2 = (2 electrons) X (1.602 X 10^-19)

I used the equation above then to find r^2; however, as you can see F = 0 X r^2 would give me zero and you cannot divide by 0 to find r. I am confused on how to find the distance.
