(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

How much work does the electric field do in moving a proton from a point with a potential of +155V to a point where it is -75V. Express your answer in both joules and electron volts.

2. Relevant equations

W = -qV

3. The attempt at a solution

I know that q=(1.6E-19) but I am not for sure how to go about incorporating my two potentials. Can someone give me some help? I thank you in advance!
