PHY2061 R. D. Field Department of Physics chp28_6.doc University of Florida Electric Potential due to a Distribution of Charge dQ dV = K dQ/r r The electric potential from a continuous distribution of charge is the superposition ( i.e. integral) of all the (infinite) contributions from each infinitesimal dQ as follows: V K r dQ = and Qd Q = Example: A total amount of charge Q is uniformly
