Three small spheres
A, B, and C have charges of equal magnitude and with signs as shown in
the figure. They are placed at the vertices of an isosceles triangle
with the distance between A and B equal to the distance between A and C.
Spheres B and C are held in place but sphere A is free to move on a frictionless
