Figure P16.12

(a)

To determine
The potential at A.

Explanation

Formula to calculate the potential is,

VA=keq+d+keqd

  • ke is the Coulomb constant.
  • q+ and q are the charges.

Substitute 27.0 nC for q+ , 15.0nC for q , 2.00 cm for r and 8.99×109 Nm2C2 for ke .

VA=(8.99×109 Nm2C2)(27.0nC)2.00cm+(8.99×109 Nm2C2)(15

(b)

To determine
The potential at B.
