1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data Two point charges q1 and q2 are held 4.00cm apart. An electron released at a point that is equidistant from both charges, undergoes an initial acceleration of 8.05×1018m/s2 directly upward in the figure, parallel to the line connecting q1 and q2. 2. Relevant equations E=k(q/r2) F=k(q/r2) E=F/q 3. The attempt at a solution I already know what the answers are. q1 = 5.97x10-6 C q2 = -5.97x10-6 C I just have no idea how they got those answers. Could someone please explain?
