## What will be the zero spot in electric field lines of 2 opposite charges?

Taha asked this question - what will be the zero spot in electric field lines of 2 opposite charges?” Answer: I think the question is about null point. When the charges are of opposite sign, the null point (also called neutral point) is not in between the two charges, but is outside the line joining the [...]
