Unformatted text preview: , January 21 The figure shows two point charges fixed in place. The charges are q 1 = +2q, and q 2 = -8q. At what point on the x-axis can an electron be placed so that it is in equilibrium? (First you have to remember what equilibrium means – then try out different positions and see). (a) To the left of q 1 (b) In between q 1 and q 2 (c) To the right of q 2...
