Problem 40PE

Problem 40PE

Sketch the equipotential lines in the vicinity of two opposite charges, where the negative charge is three times as great in magnitude as the positive. See Figure 19.28 for a similar situation. Indicate the direction of increasing potential.

Step-by-Step Solution:
Step 1 of 3

Solution 40PE

The potential is greater as one approaches the positive charge and becomes least (most negative) near negative charge. Since q1 is three times the magnitude of q2 and of opposite signs, the direction of increasing potential will be from negative charge to positive charge.

Step 2 of 3
