Finding potential between plates

  1. Feb 3, 2010 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    Determine the potential 1.0 mm from the negative plate of a pair of parallel plates separated by 4.0 mm and connected to a 24 V battery.

    2. Relevant equations
    w = EPEa - EPEb
    v = kq^2/r^2

    3. The attempt at a solution
    I'm not exactly sure how to start. Can someone tell me if I even have the right equations? Thanks!

    I'm not exactly sure what is being asked and not sure if I even have the correct equations? Could someone point me in the right direction? Thanks

    Hi matt72lsu! :smile:

    Voltage is electric potential difference. :wink:

    Two threads merged. Matt, do not multiple post. The Intro Physics forum here is the correct place for your questions.
