Homework Help: Graph of Electric Potential vs. Function

    the question asks me to draw a graph of electric potential vs distance starting from from point g (starting at g and going around in a clockwise manner).

    i am not sure how to proceed. i mean i know voltage is only meaningful if it is measured as a difference between two points. for instance, i know the voltage across the 10 ohm resistor is 0.09009V, which is the voltage at b relative to a. On the graph would i just have b = 0.09009V? If i start at g, does it mean that g has a voltage of zero?

    Thanks.

    That didn't work either ("forbidden"). Maybe it'll work for other people.
