# A cube of side b

Answer :

Given, side of the cube = b units

Charge at each vertex = q C

In the cube shown above,

d = diagonal of any face = = b units

l = diagonal of whole cube = = √3 b units

Thus, the distance of centre of the cube from each vertices = = units

∴ Electric potential at the centre of the cube, V =

(∵ 8 charges)

Where,

q = charge

d = distance from origin=

ϵ_{0} = permittivity of space

∴ V = N units C^{-1}

As the charges as symmetrically placed along the vertex of the cube, the net Electric field will be zero at the centre as the field due to 2 charges placed opposite to each other will cancel, so for all charges, net field will be 0.
