**Electrical Potential Difference Problem**
Hi, I was wondering if you guys can help me solve this homework problem my Professor assigned to me.
Also, He made it clear that I cannot use the solution the textbook solution manual uses because its a graduate level technique. They use something called "Stanley number", in which you let S= 4 x pi x K and by doing so allowing the equipotential surfaces to be equi-Stanley surfaces.
One of the pictures attached is the problem, and the other one is my attempt at the problem.
I was wondering if my attempt on the problem is on right path? Like if there's another simplier way of doing it. Also is too similar to the way the TB solution manual solves it ( in one of the pictures)?
So my thought process was using one of the formulas for Potential Difference (V) of two point charges. Then using the distance formula for for r1 and r2. Then since it's given that V=0, i can set the point charges equal to each other to solve for X which in this case would be Xc
