1. Potential differences between some pairs
points are given below. Calculate the unknown potential differences
VCA, VAD, VDB.
Hint: When considering potential differences one may arbitrarily assign any point a potential of zero (rather than "zero at infinity"). E.g., if you set VA = 0, then VB must be +5 V (since VBA = 5 V); continue for values of V at C and D and then determine VCA etc.
