Problem: Two particles, with charges of 20.0 nC and –20.0 nC, are located at the points with coordinates (0, 4.00 cm) and (0, – 4.00 cm), as shown in the figure below. A third particle with charge 10.0 nC is located at the origin (0,0). Determine the electric potential at the point (3.00 cm, 0) due to the three fixed charges (10.0 nC, 20.0 nC, and –20.0 nC).
