Unformatted text preview: 6 C at (1,0), with the distances measured in centimeters. a) ind an expression for the electrostatic potential, V , at arbitrary position (x,y). Note that the contribution of each charge to the total electrostatic potential is simply Kq/r. It is a scalar. The total electrostatic potential at any point is a sum of the electrostatic potentials for each of the point charges lying on the square). Make a 3d plot of this potential on the interval (0.05,0.95). b) ind the vector force on a charge q = 1 106 C placed at position (2,1). Note that the force is related to the electric Feld via ~ F = q ~ E . The electric Feld is related to the electrostatic potential by ~ E =~ V . 1...
