A fourth point charge, identical to the other three, is initially very far away but moving straight toward the center of the triangle along the dashed line path shown at right. It stops right when it reaches point P on the line between the bottom two charges. What was its initial speed? 43.1 cm/s An object of charge q 1 = +2.0 mC and mass m 1 = 2 kg is placed at the origin of a coordinate system, and another object of charge q 2 = +3.0 mC and mass m 2 = 3 kg is placed at x = 3.0 m. 8) Make a graph of the rightward electric field vs. position ( E vs. x ). 9) Make a graph of the electric potential vs. position ( V vs. x ) 10) Where is the electric field equal to zero? x = 1.35 m 11) What is the electric potential at the point at which the electric field is equal to zero?...
