Figure CQ16.3

(a)

To determine
The work done WAB .

Explanation

Formula to calculate the work done WAB is,

WAB=q(VBVA)

  • q is the charge.
  • VA is the potential at the point A.
  • VB is the potential at the point B.

Substitute e for q, 0 V for VA and 0 V for VB

(b)

To determine
The work done WAC .

(c)

To determine
The work done WAD .

(d)

To determine
The work done WAE .
