    For the first part do I have to calculate the electrical potential energy between the possible combinations of charges, e.g. North and west, north and east, south west, south east, and then just add them, all together?

    (calculating the electrical potential energies with Q1Q2/4πεr)

    Any help with part ii) would be appreciated, not sure how to approach it. I know that the force between 2 charges is Q1Q2/4πεr^2

    Thanks

    I'm afraid the majority of people here are organic chemists, I'm not sure if there's a physical chemist who frequents these forums any more (where is bradshaw?)

    However, I'd expect if you put this question on the physics forums you'd get an answer fairly quickly.

    I have already asked the mods to move it to physics study help
