if i have 3 unequal point charges located on the vertices of an equilateral triangle then can i assume the whole charge to be concentrated at one point to represent the whole system ? i.e one can assume the entire charge to be concentrated at that point for the purpose of calculating the electric field intensity ? can we derive a general expression for coordinates of center of charge like center of mass ?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
