Two point charges, q
_{1}
and q
_{2}
, are placed 0.30 m apart on the x-axis, as shown in the figure above. Charge q
_{1}
has a value of —3.0 x 10
^{-9}
C. The net electric field at point P is zero.
(a) What is the sign of charge q
_{2}
: positive or negative? Justify your answer.
(b) Calculate the magnitude of charge q
_{2}
.
(c) Calculate the magnitude of the electric force on q
_{2}
and indicate its direction.
(d) Determine the x-coordinate of the point on the line between the two charges at which the electric potential is zero.
(e) How much work must be done by an external force to bring an electron from infinity to the point at which the electric potential is zero? Explain your reasoning.
