An infinite number of charges each numerically equal to q and of the same sign are placed along the x-axis at $\;x=1 ,2 ,4 ,8----\;.$ Find elctric potential at $\;x=0$

$(a)\;k\;q\qquad(b)\;2 k\;q\qquad(c)\;4 k\;q\qquad(d)\;\large\frac{k\;q}{2}$

1 Answer

Answer : (b) $\;2 k\;q$
Explanation :
$V= \large\frac{k\;q}{1}+ \large\frac{k\;q}{2} +\large\frac{k\;q}{4}+ \large\frac{k\;q}{8}+ \large\frac{k\;q}{16}+---$$
