HOMEWORK ASSIGNMENT 3 4. The electrostatic potential difference is given by Eq. 25-8 as V = - W elec q , where W elec is the work done by the field as the charge q moves in the electric field. (a) V B - V A =- W elec - e ( 29 =- 3.94 × 10 - 19 J (29 - 1.60 × 10 -19 C (29 = 2.46 V. (b) V B = V C since points B and C are on the same equipotential line. Therefore, V C - V A = V B - V A = 2.46 V. (c) V B = V C since points B and C are on the same equipotential line. Therefore, V C - V B = 0 V. 20. The net electric potential at point P is the sum of those due to the six charges: V P ( 29 = V i P ( 29 i = 1 6 = k q i r i i = 1 6 , where the r i are the distances from each charge to the point P . The charges above and below the point P are a distance d 2 from P , while those at the corners are a distance
