Suppose we there is a cube (a x a x a) made up of 8 protons. 1 at each point
What is the Electric Potential Energy
The Attempt at a Solution
*U12 = Potential Energy to bring 2 to 1*
I'm aware of how to do the question but I'm not sure if I'm expressing it correctly. Remember that the potential energy is the work done configure this system in space.
Then the Electric Potential Energy would be = Wtotal = W1+W2 . . . + W8
I am also aware that when I show my equation fully that some of the distances will be sqrt(2a^2)
