## Part 1#

Two arbitrary charges lie along the $$x$$-axis.

Regardless of the values of the two point charges, there will always be a point along the $$x$$-axis at which the electric field vanishes (other than +/- infinity).

Consider a pair of equal but opposite point charges. The electric field is non-zero at all points along the $$x$$-axis (except +/- infinity).
