A charge Q = +4.5 uC is located at the origin and is fixed so that it cannot move. A small object with mass m = 2.0 g and charge q = +8.0 uC is released from rest at point A on the xaxis at x = 2.0 cm. The small object moves without friction along the xaxis under the influence of the charge Q only (gravity can be neglected) and eventually reaches point B on the xaxis at x = 10.0 cm. (a) Calculate the potential difference between point B and point A (change in VAB = VBVA). (b) Calculate the speed of the small object when it reaches point B

Elena,
Im a little stuck on the first equation you have given. In the denominator, we are supposed to multiply r1 by r2. How did you get 20 x 10? Shouldn't it be 0.1m x 0.02m?

Nevermind, that'd be my error. Read it wrong

Shouldn't the answer be 1.62*10^4V? Unless i'm putting the numbers in wrong. Please help
