Answer: 35.2 cm from q1 and 24.8 cm from q2.Answer:The third charge be placed at a distance of 30 cm from first charge such that the net electric force on it is zero.

Explanation:Given that,

Charge 1,

Charge 2,

The distance between charges, d = 60 cm

Let the third charge is placed at a distance of x from first charge. So, it will be at a distance of (0.6-x) from charge 2. So,

So, the third charge be placed at a distance of 30 cm from first charge such that the net electric force on it is zero.
