HI,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I just have a simple question if you have a square array of charges of +1 where the charges lie on the vertices of the square(so the charges form a suare patten where 4 of them form a unit square). The way you can balance the charges is by placing a -1 charge in the center of each square or two -1/2 along the diagnols of each square thus making the system neutral.Now is it possible to use simple force balance to come up with a psoition where the -1/2 charges will lie.

Anybody need more clarification tell me.

thanks
