Question

Two charges −q and +q are located at points A (0, 0, −a) and B (0, 0, +a) respectively. How much work is done in moving a test charge from point P (7, 0, 0) to Q (−3, 0, 0)?

Solution

Charge P moves on the perpendicular bisector of the line joining +q and −q. Hence, this perpendicular bisector is equidistant from both the charges. Thus, the potential will be same everywhere on this line. Therefore, work done will be zero.

  Is there an error in this question or solution?
