a charge of -2q is located at the origin, while a charge of +q is located at x=d.
A) At which location is the electric potential equal to zero.
B) The work required to bring a positive test charge to this location from far away would be?
Let the potential be zero at a point P which is x m from the origin
The potential at point P due to the two charges will be
V = 0 at point P so
the electric potential equal to zero at location x = 2d from the origin
B) The work done in bringing a charge q from initial potential Vi to final potential Vf is
the initial point far away means infinity
The final point is P where potential is zero
W = 0
