A charge of -3.50 nC and a charge of -6.30 nC are separated by a distance of 70.0 cm. Find the position at which a third charge of +7.40 nC can be placed so that the net electrostatic force on it is zero.© BrainMass Inc. brainmass.com December 16, 2022, 9:59 am ad1c9bdddf
Any positive charge placed to the left of -3.50 nC charge or to the right of the -6.30 nC charge would not experience a net zero electric force. However, placing a positive charge in the region between the two charges could produce a net zero electric force.
Let us ...
This solution involves finding the location where the total electric force on a given positive charge is zero in a region of two negative charges.The solution to this question includes a complete and clear step-by-step answer, along with a diagram.
