Two point charges are placed on the x axis.(Figure 1)The first charge, q1 = 8.00 nC , is placed a distance 16.0 m from the origin along the positive x axis; the second charge, q2 = 6.00 nC , is placed a distance 9.00 m from the origin along the negative x axis. Find the electric field at the origin, point O

Step 1

It is given that 2 point charges are placed on x-axis as shown in the figure below and the question is to find the electric field at the origin because of these two charges.

Step 2

Electric field at the origin (point o) because of charge q1 is:

Step 3

Electric field at the origin (point o) be...
