The electric field at the midway between two charges is 7059.9N/CExplanation:Given-

charge, q1 = 35.5 X 10⁻⁹ C

q2 = 77.2 X 10⁻⁹C

distance, r = 46.1cm

midway distance, r = 23.05 cm = 0.2305 m

Coulomb’s constant, k = 8.99 X 10⁹ Nm²/C²

Electric field, E = ?

We know,

Therefore, electric field at the midway between two charges is 7059.9N/C
