Electric Potential: finding charges (physics)?

The graph in the figure shows the electric potential energy as a function of separation for two point charges. If one charge is +0.44 nC, what is the other charge?

answer in nC

thanks

Answer:

The PE formula is;

U = kqQ/r

From graph U = -4×10^-6 J when r=.01 m

-4×10^-6 = (9×10^9)(.44×10^-9)Q/.01

Q = – 10 nC
