Electric Potential and Four Point Charges

Four point charges q = +3.6 uC are arranged in a square of edge length 2.0 cm. What is the electric potential at the center of the square? What is the electric potential at the midpoint of one edge?

Solution Preview

Electrical potential U is equal to

U = SUM (1/(4pi(e_0)) * (q_i)/(r_i)

where q_i are the charges that contribute to U and r_i are ...

Solution Summary

This solution provides calculations and answers for (a) the electric potential at the center and (b) the electric potential of the middle of each side.
