## Overview

Derive potential energy of Q at r in external field E as QV (r). Introduce unit eV and define it.,Derive total energy = Q1V (r1) + Q2V (r2) + Q1Q2 / 4 (pi) e0r12. Derive that potential energy to make a system of two charges is U = (1 / 4 (pi) e0) * (Q1Q2 / r12). Since potential energy between two charges is independent of presence of 3rd charge, derive for 3 charge, U = (1 / 4 (pi) e0) * (Q1Q2 / r12 + Q2Q3 / r23 + Q1Q3 / r13). Solve problems.,Derive U = (1 / 4 (pi) e)) * (Q^2 / 2R). Derive U = (1 / 4 (pi) e)) * (3Q^2 / 5R).
