So what I did was: Kq1/(1+r) + Kq2/r = 0, making r =the distance away from q2 outside of the system to be the equilibrium point. so q1 is 1m + r distance away from the point, and q2 = r distance away from the point. K's cancel out, you get: q1/(1+r) + q2/r = 0 Some algebra, turns out r = -0.2m. Does that mean the point is 0.2m inwards from q2->q1 instead of outside of the system? aka: (q1) -----0.8m----(qe)--0.2--(q2), where qe = equilbirium point? Also, arent there two points which are in equliibrium of the system? We did a problem in class similar to this and had 2 pointsat equlibrium. Any help is greatly appreciated.
