Textbook Problem

Two positive charges each of charge q are fixed on the y-axis, one at y = d and the other at y = −d as in Figure P16.70. A third positive charge 2q located on the x-axis at x = 2d is released from rest. Find symbolic expressions for (a) the total electric potential due to the first two charges at the location of the charge 2q, (b) the electric potential energy of the charge 2q, (c) the kinetic energy of the charge 2q after it has moved infinitely far from the other charges, and (d) the speed of the charge 2q after it has moved infinitely far from the other charges if its mass is m.

Figure P16.70

(a)

To determine
The total electric potential at the location of 2q charge.

Explanation

Formula to calculate the total electric potential at the location of 2q charge is,

V=keqr+keqr

The distance of separation is,

r=d2+(2d)2

(b)

To determine
The total electric potential energy of 2q charge.

(c)

To determine
The total kinetic potential energy of 2q charge.

(d)

To determine
The speed of 2q charge.
