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?
I decided to use the equation for voltage and set it up like this:
E = 0 = (k)(Q1) / x + (k)(Q2) / x
I am attempting to use the x variable as my location on the x axis.
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.
