Step 1

The electric field lines out of the positive charge and toward the negative charge.

Write the expression for electric field due to a point charge.

Step 2

Using the equation above, the magnitude of the electric field due to a charge at origin can be calculated as follows.

Step 3

Using the equation above, the magnitude of the electric fiel...
