Example Example Positive and negative charges of equal magnitude Q are held in a circle of radius R. 1. What is the electric potential at the center of each circle? V A = V B = V C = 2. Draw an arrow representing the approximate direction of the electric field at the center of each circle. 3. Which system has the highest electric potential energy ? –Q +Q A C B k +3 Q - 2 Q ( ) / r = + kQ / r = i i i r q k V k +2 Q - 4 Q ( ) / r = - 2 kQ / r k + 2Θ - 2Θ ( 29 / ρ= 0 B
