Question

A charge +q is located at the origin, while an identical charge is located on the x axis at x = +0.40 m. A third charge of +2q is located on the x axis at such a place that the net electrostatic force on the charge at the origin doubles, its direction remaining unchanged. Where should the third charge be located?
