A point charge  = -0.36  is fixed at the origin. Where must a proton be placed in order for the electric force acting on it to be exactly opposite to its weight? (Let the  axis be vertical and the  axis be horizontal.)

below or above the q?

Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

The electric force must be up so since the charge at the origin is negative the force on a proton will be up if it is BELOW q

Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
