## Homework Statement

Two point charges, -520x10

^{-6}C and -270x10

^{-6}C are 2 meters apart. At which point would a carbon nucleus experience zero net force?

(positive test charge)

## Homework Equations

k=9x10

^{9}

F=k((q

_{1}*q

_{2})/r

^{2}) Coulomb's Law

E=k(q

_{1}/r

^{2})=(F/q

_{2})

## The Attempt at a Solution

I really don't understand the method to solving the problem. A simply outline of what to find and then how to manipulate the equations to get the distance would really help me solve this. Fiddling has gotten me nowhere.

Thanks
