A force of 2.4N [L] is exerted on a -1.8x10-6C charge 0.2m away. What are the possible charges and locations of the second charge?
FE= kq1q2 / d2
The Attempt at a Solution
Rearranging the equation above for q2 is
q2 = FE x d2 / kq1
and substituting values gives an answer of
Therefore, I have the charge value, but how do I know the locations of the second charge? Would it just be [Left or Right] of the 1st charge?
