General Physics II Homework 4 Worked Examples Giancoli: 17.19, 17.26, 17.63, 17.65, 17.72 19. The potential at the corner is the sum of the potentials due to each of the charges, using Eq. 17-5. 26. Use Eq. 17-2b and Eq. 17-5. 63. ( a )Because of the inverse square nature of the electric field, any location where the field is zero must be closer to the weaker charge . Also, in between the two charges, the fields due to the two charges are parallel to each other (both to the left) and cannot cancel. Thus the only places where the field can be zero are closer to the weaker charge, but not between them. In the diagram, this is the point labeled as “ x . Take to the right as the positive direction. ( b )The potential due to the positive charge is positive everywhere, and the potential due to the negative charge is negative everywhere. Since the negative charge is smaller in magnitude than the positive charge, any point where the potential is zero must be closer to the negative charge. So consider locations between the charges (position ) and to the left of the negative charge (position ) as shown in the diagram.

"Before using Course Hero my grade was at 78%. By the end of the semester my grade was at 90%. I could not have done it without all the class material I found."

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
