Question

Use the rules described on page 314 to sketch the electric field lines in the region surrounding a-1C charge and a +2 C charge, separated by a short distance, as shown. Be sure to indicate the direction of the electric field lines [hint : rule # 2 on page 314 means that you will have more field lines leaving the +2C charge than you have entering the -1C charge. ]

I am having a hard time understanding why the solved answer on your site, for the following question, uses x-2 instead of x+2 for the -2q charge. I attached my work for part A as well as where I am confused at. Aren't I just supposed to solve for x at this point? The - seems to be throwing me off. Any explanation you can offer would be appreciated!

A thin plastic rod of length L has a positive charge Q uniformly distributed along its length. We willcalculate the exact field due to the rod in the next homework set. In this set, we will approximatethe rod as several point sources and develop the Riemann sum as an intermediate step on the wayto writing an integral.For those aiming at a P rating, you may use L = 3.0m , Q = 17 mC, and y = 0.11m to calculate theanswer numerically first and substitute variables for them only as required in the problem statement.For those aiming at an E rating, leave L, Q and y as variables. Substitute numbers only whererequired in the problem statement, and only as a last step
