I cannot figure out this problem. I mean, I can't really even figure out what it is asking. I am not expecting anyone to solve it for me or anything. I just need some help as to how to get started.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Particles A and B Figure 22-25a shows charged particles A and B that are fixed in place on an x axis. Particle A has an amount of charge of |qA| = 9.00e. Particle C, with a charge of qC = +9.00e, is initially on the x axis near particle B. Then particle C is gradually moved in the positive direction of the x axis. As a result, the magnitude of the net electrostatic force net, B on particle B due to particles A and C changes. Figure 22-25b gives the x-component of that net force as a function of the position x of particle C. The plot has an asymptote of net, B = 1.553 10-25 N as x . As a multiple of e, what is the charge qB of particle B?

Figure 22-25a is basically a plot of three points, with point (a) on the negative x axis, point (b) at the origin, and point (c) on the positive x axis. Then there is also a graph of Fnet-->b. I don't know if you can figure out the problem without the graph, but any help on how to do it would be greatly appreciated!!!!!

Thanks,

Beverly
