2 Problem 20.68. ± Four balls, each with mass m , are connected by four nonconducting strings to form a square with side a as shown in Figure P20.68. The assembly is placed on a horizontal, nonconducting, frictionless surface. Balls 1 and 2 each have charge q , and balls 3 and 4 are uncharged. Find the maximum speed of balls 3 and 4 after the string connecting balls 1 and 2 is cut.

3 Finding E From V ± Assume, to start, that E has only an x component ± Similar statements would apply to the y and z components ± Equipotential surfaces must always be perpendicular to the electric field lines passing through them xx dV d becomes E dx and E dx −⋅ = Es r r (dV =)
