1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data Two identical positive charges of +Q are 1 m apart. What is the magnitude and direction of the electric field at point A, 0.25 m to the right of the left-hand charge? 2. Relevant equations E = kQ/r^2 3. The attempt at a solution I summed up kQ+/(.25^2) and kQ+/(.75^2) and what I got was one of the answer choices, but apparently it was wrong. Evidently you have to subtract the .75 charge from the .25 to get the right answer. I also am unsure of which direction the electric field points.
