    You should be able to start by writing the relevant equations: What types of forces are involved? What equations apply to those forces? Sketch vectors for them on your diagram, creating a free body diagram for the electrically charged mass.

    Note that there is only one charged object in the problem, so your thread title,"Two charges in balance" is incorrect. I will change it.
