Homework Help: Determine the Potential

  1. Mar 12, 2010 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    Determine the value of the potential at points a to d in the figure

    2. Relevant equations



    3. The attempt at a solution

    I really have no idea on how to even approach the problem. If you could just start me off and tell me where to go it would be a huge help. Thanks!

    Start with point (c) since it is grounded. Then figure out (b). (a) and (d) will involve a little algebra.

    Kirchof's voltage law is useful here.

    p.s. Go Sox!
