Physics/Math help please
You seem to have left out part of the question. How is x defined? Is it the distance from q1 at which the forces on a third charge cancel? If so, all you can solve for is x/s (or s/x), not x itself. q2/q1 = (s-x)^2/x^2 = [(s/x)-1]^2 (s/x) - 1 = sqrt (q2/q1) s/x = 1 + sqrt (q2/q1)

Physics
There is a formula for the force (F) between two charges (Q1 and Q2), separated by a distance R. It is called Coulomb's Law. It must be in your text or notes; otherwise they would not have assigned this problem. The formula says F = k Q1*Q2/R^2 where k is a constant that ...

The force between them, together with Coulomb's law, will tell you the value of the product Q1*Q2. Since you know Q1 = -18 already, you can solve for Q2. It is not clear whether the - sign in front of the force indicates the charges attract or repel.
