Question

Points a and b lie in a region where the y-component of the electric field is Ey=α+β/y2. The constants in this expression have the values α = 600 N/C and β = 5.00 N⋅m2/C. Points a and b are on the y-axis.

 

1) Point a is at y = 2.00 cm and point b is at y = 3.00 cm. What is the potential difference Va−Vb between these two points.

 

2) Which point, a or b, is at higher potential?
