Electric potential:

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

The distance r is given by properties of equilateral triangle:

r = a/sqrt(3)

r = (3.0)/sqrt(3) = 1.732 cm

What is the electric potential at the point indicated with the dot in the figure? (Figure 1)

Express your answer using two significant figures.
