Thanks Mr. Charles Link. In the first solution i get the q12 -6*10-6q1 -16*10-12 = 0
and for second one i get q12 - 6*10-6q1-16*106 = 0.
My question is why i get different powers for the term involving -16.

Capacitors are connected in series. So the effective capacitance is
1/Cs = 1/C + 1/2C + 1/3C
= 11/6C
Cs = 6C/11
Now substitute this value for C for the equation V = 11/6(Q/C) you ll get Q/C which is nothing but V or V1
Hope you got it now

ok. Now i am confronted with the magnitude of test charge and source charge. Should they be of same magnitude? I presume the test charge is unit positive charge. But i can't get an idea of magnitude of source charge, in the concept of electric potential
Thanks for the detailed explanation, ehild. What is the position of the two points A and B in a electric field? For example, i draw a straight line XY. Where should i position the points A and B that satisfies your explanation?

Electric potential --- doubt in sign convention

Revered members,
I know dV = -E.dx so
E = -dV/dx
So E should be E = -V/x . But while deriving capacitance of a parallel plate capacitor when dielectric medium is introduced we use E = V/x.
But how E = V/x?

Thanks omoplata. I raised this query in many forums but i could not get any satisfactory reply. Now with your example, i clearly understood the concept. Persons like you are an asset to this forum. Thanks a lot for your valuable help.
Omaplata, one more doubt. Why vsinθ has no effect in measurement of velocity? Only vcosθ has been taken into account. It has been mentioned since vsinθ is perpendicular to the vertical diameter, it has no effect. I don't understand. Could you clarify?

Thank you Redbelly and Simon. So, when the electron releases photon when it comes to E2, we supply again a photon of energy E2 - E1 and the supplied photon acts as stimulating photon. Am I right?
Thanks for the reply Simon. So I infer that the electron in the metastable state has already has an absorbed photon, and if we supply a photon of energy E2 - E1 externally, then this photon plus the absorbed photon are emitted and both are in same phase. Am I right?
