# Worksheet: Absolute Electric Potential

In this worksheet, we will practice defining the absolute electric potential of a point charge in terms of the change in potential difference around the charge.

**Q3: **

Two charges of µC and µC are separated by 4.0 cm on the -axis symmetrically about the origin, with the positive charge uppermost. Two points of interest and are located 3.0 cm and 30 cm from origin at an angle of with respect to the -axis.

**Q6: **

A small spherical pith ball of radius 0.36 cm is painted with a silver paint and then µC of charge is applied to it. The charged pith ball is put at the center of a gold spherical shell of inner radius 3.0 cm and outer radius 3.3 cm. Find the electric potential at the surface of the gold shell with respect to zero potential at infinity.

**Q7: **

A point charge C is placed at the center of an uncharged spherical conducting shell of inner radius 7.0 cm and outer radius 8.5 cm. The points , , and are at distances of 5.0 cm, 7.5 cm, and 13.5 cm, respectively, from the point charge.
