(c) Find the electric potential V at point O . (d) Find the potential energy U of charge q 2 in the presence of charge q 1 . x q = +8nC q = -4nC O 3m 4m 2 1 y Solution: (a) F = k | q 1 q 2 | (5m) 2 = 1 . 15 × 10 - 8 N . (b) E x = - k | q 2 | (4m) 2 = - 4 . 5N / C , E y = + k | q 1 | (3m) 2 = +4 . 0N / C . (c)
