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

A charge of 5.00mC is at the point (1.00m, 0.00m) and a charge of -4.00 is at the point (-1.00m, 0.00m). At what point, or points, on the x-axis is E=0?

2. Relevant equations

I decided to use the equation for voltage and set it up like this:

E = 0 = (k)(Q_{1}) / x + (k)(Q_{2}) / x

I am attempting to use the x variable as my location on the x axis.

3. The attempt at a solution

When I work the problem like I have shown above, the only possible answer to the question is infinity, and I do not believe this to be the correct answer.

Thank you guys so much for any help. I have been looking at this for a long time and can't seem to get anywhere.

Peacemaster
