How much work is required to assemble eight identical point charges, each of magnitude q , at the corners of a cube of side s ? Assume that initially the charges are separated by large distances from each other. 2. (Fig. 2) The charge configuration used in this problem is the same as that in Problem 1 of Problem Set 3. Four identical, positive point charges, each carrying charge Q are placed at the corners of a square side 2 L . The square lies in the XY-plane with its centre at the origin. Let P be a point on the Z-axis. (a) Determine the electric potential at P due to the four charges. (b) A point charge Q is placed at the point P 2 (0 , , 2 L ) on the Z-axis and released, while the other four charges remain stationary. With what speed is it moving when it is infinitely far from thefour charges remain stationary....
