# Two charges q<sub

Given

Positon of charge with magnitude q1 = (0, 0, d)

Positon of charge with magnitude q2 = (0, 0, -d)

The potential due to a point charge q at a distance r is given by  Let the potential of due to the two charges at any point having coordinates (x, y, z) be V, then Where and Therefore, the equation for potential becomes: If the potential is zero then, V=0  Squaring both sides, we have Using the property  We have,  Comparing the equation with the general equation of a sphere, we have The center of the sphere to be a=0, b=0 and c= , therefore the equipotential surface is a sphere with center [0, 0, Rate this question :
