Default Where should the third charge be located?



A charge of +q is located at the origin, while an identical charge is located on the x axis at x = 0.50 m. A third charge of +4 q is located on the x axis at such a place that the net electrostatic force on the charge at the origin quadruples, its direction remaining unchanged.

x = _______m
