(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

Suppose that the electrostatic potential has a minimum at some point. Is this an equilibrium point for a positive charge? For a negative charge?

I simply don't understand what the question is asking - what is an equilibrium point? A restatement would be terrific.

Thanks.
