1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data The electric field midway between two equal but opposite point charges is 894 N/C, and the distance between the charges is 17.2 cm. What is the magnitude of the charge on each? 2. Relevant equations E = Fe/q Fe = kq1q2/r^2 3. The attempt at a solution Electric field = k*q/r^2 = 447 N/C. You know r and k, so just solve for q. I tried about 5 times already and it is always wrong my most recent attempt I divided the Electric Field by two so I had 446 N/C = 8.99e9 * q/.172^2. But it was wrong. I might have typed this up wrong but I am new here, sorry. If you guys could help me that'd be great. Thank you.
