Example 3.8.10



 The strength of fields such as gravity or electromagnetism is inversely proportional to distance from the source. If two such sources are separated by a distance of $L$ units, determine where on the line connecting the sources will the minimum strength be detected? Assume that the strength of one source is $k$ times that of the other.
