Expert Answer

Step 1

Given:       charge, q = (1/9) × 10-9 C at three corners of rectangle

Find: (1)   Elecreic potential at fourth corner where there is no charge.

Find: (2) Potential energy, if a charge Q = 1C is set at the fourth corner.

Step 2

(1)  At fourth corner which is having no charge will be having electric potential Vnet as given in the formula.

Step 3

So, we have got the electric potential at fourth corner w...
