At point A, The electric potential is given as:
VA = k(Q)/d + k(2Q)/sqrt(2)d = (kQ/d)[1 + 2/sqrt(2)] = 2.414kQ/d
Rank the electric potentials at the four points shown in the figure below from largest to smallest. (Use only ">" or "=" symbols. Do not include any parentheses around the letters or symbols.)
