Given are two charges +1 X 10^-6 and one 3 X 10 ^ -6 distnace of 10 cm apart(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I know there is a poitn in between these two and it is 4 cm from the 1.0 X 10^-6 charge

But i am asked to plot the elctric field strength as a function

if the elctric field is pointing right, then positive, otherwise if poitning left, then negative

Let what happens on the outside of these two charges be, i can figure that on my own

But what happen in the middle

Point at 4 cm and rises after??

(+)------------- (+)

Negative
