Homework Help: A pretty challenging physics Q

  1. Feb 20, 2005 #1
    hey guyz, this Q is pretty hard. I think.

    Identical point charges (+50uC) are placed at the corners of a square with sides of 2.0-m length. How much external energy is required to bring a fifth identical charge from infinity to the geometric center of the square?

    Thnaks guyz

    What is the relationship between the work done to move a charge to point A from infinity and the voltage at point A relative to infinity?
