  1. Aug 30, 2010 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    A point charge +5q is located at the origin, and a point charge –3q is located on the x-axis at D = 0.361 m. At what location on the x-axis will a third charge, q0, experience no net force from the other two charges?



    2. Relevant equations

    F = k * (q1q2/r^2)


    3. The attempt at a solution
