Escaping field lines Charges 2q and −q are located on the x-axis
at x = 0 and x = a, respectively.(a) Find the point on the x-axis
where the electric field is zero, and make a rough sketch of some
field lines.(b) You should find that some of the field lines that
start on the 2q charge end up on the −q charge, while others head
