Expert Answer

Step 1

Let the electric field due to charge q1 be denoted as E1, whereas the electric field due to charge q2 be denoted as E2.

Let x denote the distance to the right of the charge q2 ,along the positive  x axis,  at which the net electric field of due to the two particles is zero.

Step 2

From the figure , it can be inferred that the charge

The net electric field Enet at a distance x to the right, from the charge q2  along the x axis due to both charges is,

Step 3

Since the net electric field at a distance x to the right of the charge q2 is zero, substitute 0 for Enet , -5.61q for q1 , 3.31q for q...
