# Problem: What is the electric potential at the point indicated with the dot in the figure below? Suppose that q = 1.4 nC.

###### FREE Expert Solution

Electric potential due to charge:

$\overline{){\mathbf{V}}{\mathbf{=}}\frac{\mathbf{k}\mathbf{q}}{\mathbf{r}}}$

The potential at the point will be addition of the potentials due to all the three charges.

The distance between the charge q and the point is given by:

${\mathbit{r}}_{\mathbf{q}\mathbf{p}}\mathbf{=}\sqrt{\mathbf{3}\mathbf{.}{\mathbf{0}}^{\mathbf{2}}\mathbf{+}\mathbf{4}\mathbf{.}{\mathbf{0}}^{\mathbf{2}}}$

rqp = 5cm.
