first: mg sin30=q2 /4??0l2  at equilibrium.
as the component of gravitational force is balanced by the electrostatic repulsion.
here the length between the centre of the two balls is 2l sin 30 =l from simple geomety,see by drawing the diagram.
now at a point which is at 2:3 dist, resultant intensity=(1/4??0)q(25/4l2 -25/9l2
putting the value of q from the first equation of equilibrium)=approximately 43.3Ã—103N

# Why does the charge inside the closed surface of a gaussian surface contribute to electric flux. Why doesnt it pass through as in the case of electric flux due to a charge that is situated outside? Ans: When we find electric flux through a surface, then we consider the charge enclosed by the surface. This is done because Gauss' law is defined in terms of charge enclosed. So, a charge that is situated inside the surface contributes to the flux.   Thank you for a quick response. However, the answer provided by you doesnt clarify my doubt. There was a clear reasoning provided in the video lesson, why charge outside does not contribute to the flux. The electric field lines produced by a charge situated outside pass through the gaussian surface. Therefore, the question iam asking is that, what happens in the case of charge situated inside.
