Suppose we have q1, q2, …..qn are the electric charges distributed discretely and r1, r2,……rn are the position vectors, respectively, then electric potential at point P due to electric charge qn is calculated as below.

The total electrical potential at point P is the sum of all electrical potential of all charges of distribution.
V = V
1 + V2 + ………….+ Vn
