## Homework Statement

A force of 2.4N [L] is exerted on a -1.8x10

^{-6}C charge 0.2m away. What are the possible charges and

**locations**of the second charge?

## Homework Equations

F

_{E}= kq

_{1}q

_{2}/ d

^{2}

## The Attempt at a Solution

Rearranging the equation above for q

_{2}is

q

_{2}= F

_{E}x d

^{2}/ kq

_{1}

and substituting values gives an answer of

-5.9x10

^{-6}C.

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?
