Problem 2 (1/18/08) : Two positive point charges are located on the x axis as shown and are separated by 1.0 m. The magnitude of each charge is given in the figure. How far from charge 1 should a third charge be placed on the x axis between the two charges such that it feels no force? What does the sign of the third charge have to be? Does it matter? x 1 2 5 0 C 7 5 C +5.0 C +7.5 C 1.0 m

Problem 3 (1/18/08): Your body is composed of approximately 5 x 10 27 hydrogen atoms, each one with a single proton and electron, so that you are electrically neutral. Suppose, however, that you are standing 0.5 m away from your friend, and each of you has just 1% more protons than electrons. Calculate the repulsive force between you.
