## Homework Statement

A positive charge, q1 is at (-20cm,0). An equal and opposite charge q2 is at (20cm, 0). A positive charge q3, equal to q1, is placed at (60cm,0). What is the potential energy of the three charges??

## Homework Equations

EPE= kq / r

## The Attempt at a Solution

EPE = k( (5 X 10^-9)/.2) + (5 X 10^-6)/.6) - (5 X 10^-6)/.2))

= wrong answer
