Two point charges are fixed on the y-axis at the locations shown in the figure above. A charge of +q is located at y = a and a charge of +2q is located at y = -a. Express your answers to a and b in terms of q,a, and fundamental constants.

A third charge of -q is first placed t an arbitrary points A (x = -Xo) on the x-axis as shown in the figure below
