#### Question

Three point charges, + Q + 2Q and – 3Q are placed at the vertices of an equilateral triangle ABC of side l. If these charges are displaced to the mid-point A_{1}, B_{1} and C_{1}, respectively, find the amount of the work done in shifting the charges to the new locations.

We know that electric field is discontinuous across the surface of a charged conductor. Is electric potential also discontinuous there?

A small test charge is released at rest at a point in an electrostatic field configuration. Will it travel along the field line passing through that point?

In a hydrogen atom, the electron and proton are bound at a distance of about 0.53 Å:

**(a)** Estimate the potential energy of the system in eV, taking the zero of the potential energy at infinite separation of the electron from proton.

**(b)** What is the minimum work required to free the electron, given that its kinetic energy in the orbit is half the magnitude of potential energy obtained in (a)?
