(a) Find the electric potential, taking zero at infinity, at the upper right corner (the corner without a charge) of the rectangle in Figure P16.13. (b) Repeat if the 2.00-μC charge is replaced with a charge of −2.00 μC. Figure P16.13 Problems 13 and 14.

(a)

To determine
The electric potential.

Explanation

Formula to calculate the potential is,

V=keq1r1+keq2r2+keq3r12+r22

• ke is the Coulomb constant.
• q1 , q2 and q3 are the charges.
• r1 , r2 are the distances of charges from the point.

Substitute 8.00μC for q1 , 4.00μC for q2 , 2.00μC for q3 , 6.00 cm for r1 ,2.00 cm for r2 and 8.99×109 Nm2C2 for ke

(b)

To determine
The electric potential.
