1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data A point charge of -0.5 C is located at the origin. A second point charge of 12 C is at x = 1 m, y = 0.5 m. Find the x and y coordinates of the position at which an electron would be in equilibrium. 2. Relevant equations F=k*((q_1*q_2)/r^2) 3. The attempt at a solution I know that I will have to find the two forces that the point charges will have on the electron at some arbitrary point that we will eventually solve for. We then set those two forces equal to each other and then solve for the distance. Once we have the distance we can easily solve for the components using simple trig... I must be having a problem setting up my equations any help?
