PHY2061 R. D. Field Department of Physics chp28_6.doc University of Florida Electric Potential due to a Distribution of Charge dQdV = K dQ/rrThe 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: VKrdQ=∫and QdQ=∫Example: A total amount of charge Q is uniformly
