Confguration G only 2. Confgurations G , S and M only 3. Confguration P only 4. Confguration L only 5. Confguration S only correct 6. Confgurations G and P only 7. Confgurations P and M only 8. Confgurations G , P and M only 9. Confgurations P , L and M only 10. Confgurations G and M only Explanation: Basic Concepts: Δ E = k Δ q r 2 ˆ r and E = s Δ E . Symmetry oF the confguration will cause some component oF the electric feld to be zero. Solution: Confguration G : It is anti- symmetric about the y -axis (opposite sign oF charges), so the electric feld has no y - component. x y G Confguration P : It is symmetric by a ro- tation oF 180 , so the electric felds generated by these two pieces have opposite directions; thereFore the total feld is zero.
