Electric potential due to a point charge = 

The electrical potential due to point charges

so let (x,y) be th e locus of point net potential at point is zero

V(x,y,z)= 0

[Q / k.((x-3a)2 + y2 )1/2 ] + [ -2Q / k.((x+3a)2 + y2 )1/2 ] = 0

4*((x-3a)2 + y2 )1/2 - ((x+3a)2 + y2 )1/2 = 0

The locus is a circle : x2 + y2 +9a2 -10.a.x = 0

it's got to be an equipotential surface.

  1. for pt charges the equipotential surfaces are concentric circles.
