## Homework Statement

Three point charges of +6.00 μC, +4.00 [/B]μC

**, and +6.00**μC

**are placed along the x-axis 0.200 m above the +4.00**μC

**charge as shown in the figure below. What is the electrical potential at point P (relative to infinity) due to these charges?**

## Homework Equations

Vp = V1 + V2 + V3

Vp= ##\frac {kQ} {r^2}## + ##\frac {kQ} {r^2}## + ##\frac {kQ} {r^2}##

## The Attempt at a Solution

Vp= ##\frac {kQ} {r^2}## + ##\frac {kQ} {r^2}## + ##\frac {kQ} {r^2}##

Vp= 8.99 x10

^{9}⋅ 6 x 10

^{-6}/ 0.283

^{2}+ 8.99 x10

^{9}⋅ 4.00 x 10

^{-6}/ 0.200

^{2}+ 8.99 x10

^{9}⋅ 6 x 10

^{-6}/ 0.283

^{2}

Vp = 2.24 × 10

^{6}V
