Two identical point charges are fixed to diagonally opposite corners of a square that is 0.6 m on a side. Each charge is +2.5 µC. How much work is done by the electric force as one of the charges moves to an empty corner?

  • Physics -

    work=differenceinpotential*q

    The potential starting is kQ/.6(sqrt2)
    the potential ending is kQ/.6

    work=kq/.6(.707-1)
