Two +6.0-µC point charges are placed at the corners of the base of an equilateral triangle, as shown in the

figure. (k = 1/4πε0 = 8.99 × 109 N • m2/C2) At the vertex, P, of the triangle (a) what is the electric potential (relative to infinity) due to these charges? (b) what is the magnitude of the electric field due to these charges?

a) Electric potential, V = 5.4*10... View the full answer


a. Electric potential! - For any chargez
the potential at any point P at
9= 20m.
a distance ' a'is givenby
6 MC
V = kq
where KI Gne = 98109 Nim" / C 2
for the point o!- charge, 9= 6 Me =...
