(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

Two pont charges of magnitude 6.17 nC and -4.32 nC are separated by 29.1 cm. The acceleration of gravity is 9.8 m/s^2. the Coulomb constant is 8.98755 x 10 ^9 N m^2/C^2. What is the electric potential at a point midway between the charges? Answer in units of V.

2. Relevant equations

well I know Columb's law obviously comes into effet. If its just finding the electric force of repulsion between the 2 object it would be ez. But the potential? IS the acceleration of gravity even relevant in this problem?

3. The attempt at a solution

I know that (electric potential ) V = kq/ r and Columb's equation is F = Kq1q2/r^2. How can I manipulate both of these equations?

Thanks
