# 729 drops of same size are charged to a potential of 1 V each . If they coalesce to form a single drop , its potential would be

$(a)\;V\qquad(b)\;9 V\qquad(c)\;81 V\qquad(d)\;729 V$

Can you answer this question?

Answer ; (c) 81
Explanation : Charge on final drop = 729 q
radius of final drop =$\; \sqrt[3]{729}\;r$
$= 9\;r$
Potential of final drop = $\;\large\frac{729}{9} = 81 V\;.$
