1. Please could someone work out the answer to the electric potential in Q 4) c) - I got the rest of it right, but my answer was different to the book for that part

What did the book get, and what did you get?

I got 2500V, whereas the book got 5000V

The Pd across the gap is 10KV. So halfway the PD will be half of that which is 5000V

Oh okay, thank you!
I used the electric field strength from V/d and multiplied by r to get Velec. Is this an incorrect method?

Yes you can use that equation! Field Strength is the same but the distance r is half

Aha maybe that's where I went wrong! Thank you
