Here is the problems that's giving me trouble:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Positive charge Q is distributed uniformly over each of two spherical volumes of radius R. One sphere of charge is centered at the origin and the other at x=2R. Find the magnitude and direction of the net electric field due to these two distributions of charge at the following points on the x-axis.

a) x=0

b) x=R/2

c) x=3R

Do I use the equation E=1/(4*pi*epsilon) (Q/R^3)??

If so, can someone give me a hint on how to apply it to this problem?
