Two point charges q1 and q2 are held 4.00 cm apart. An electron released at a point that is equidistant from both charges undergoes an initial acceleration of 8.95 X 10^18 m/s2 directly upward,parallel to the line connecting q1 and q2

    You have described the physical situation.
    What is the question?
    Is the starting point of the electron along the line between q1 and q2? There are meny possible equidistant positions

    I don't see how the acceleration can bbe both "directly upward" and parallel to the line between q1 and q2, unless q1 and q2 lie along a vertical line.

    Two point charges q1 and q2 are held 4.00 cm apart vertically. An electron released at the middle point that is equidistant from both charges undergoes an initial acceleration of 8.95 X 10^18 m/s2 directly upward,parallel to the line connecting q1 and q2 .Find the magnitude and direction of q1 and q2
