What does it mean by 0 V or 0 potential between two charges?

If there are two point charges A and B. And if there is a point between them that has 0 V then why is: Va + Vb = 0?

Hello Miraj! :smile:
What does it mean by 0 V or 0 potential between two charges?

(Do you mean 0 potential at a particular point between two charges?)

Not much. :redface:

0 potential is arbitrary, you can choose it to be 0 anywhere.

Or do you mean that the two charges are at the same potential? That would mean that if you connected them with a wire … nothing would happen! :wink:

I don't understand …

can you please copy the full question? :smile:
