Two charges, one of 2.50 micro coulomb, and the other of -3.50 micro coulomb, are placed on the x-axis, one at the origin and the other at x=0.600m, as shown in Fig 21.36. Find the position on the x-axis where the net force on a small charge +q would be zero

2. Relevant equations

F= kq1q1/r^2

3. The attempt at a solution

I tried to equate the force when the distance of the two charges are 0.6m away to the force when the distance is x+0.6
