|dw:1361081269043:dw| Why would x=0 make $$V_a$$ zero?

3. JenniferSmart1

It's an example in my book. $V_b-V_a=-\int_{xa}^{xb}Edx$

4. hartnn

all i can tell you is x=0 means yz plane. |dw:1361081413415:dw|

5. JenniferSmart1

I guess I can chose where x=0 is. The question is the following: A uniform electrostatic field points in the +x direction and has a magnitude of E=10N/C=10V/m. Find the potential as a function of x, assuming that V=0 at x=0.

6. JenniferSmart1

oh nevermind.....LOL since x=0 it's at the yz plane...silly me haha

ok I need to go to sleep it's midnight...I can't even read anymore

8. hartnn

thats what i said.

9. JenniferSmart1

yep you did, It just didn't register in my head.
