1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data Two electric charges are separated by a finite distance. Somewhere between the charges, on the line connecting them, the net electric field they produce is zero. 1) Do the charges have the same or opposite signs? Explain 2) If the point of zero field is closer to charge 1, is the magnitude of charge 1 greater than or less than the magnitude of charge 2? explain 2. Relevant equations none 3. The attempt at a solution I know for number 1 the charges are the same and that for number 2 it is less. However, I just wanted to clerify whether my thinking process is correct for my reasoning. For 1, I think it is the same charge because of the zero magnitude. B/c of zero mag, this means that there are like charges "repelling" each other? For 2, I think it is less b/c I think that the magnitude of 2 is greater, thus have a stronger "pull" on the point.
