But doesn't that equation give the energy in joules?

Let's try it this way...suppose I said to you distance equals verlocity times time...d = vt, and asked you how long it will take to move a given distance at a given velocity.....

how would you approach that??

Use the same approach to your problem...

Also, this is NOT the forum for homework questions....

However, since they in this case only differ by e it is not at all unusual for people to talk about potential energy in volts.

Also, there IS a way to

You should be able to figure it out by looking at the equation (which I suspect is what Naty1 is refering to)

Hi miamirulz29!

(btw, "joules" and "volts" have

I agree with you …

potential energy is in joules …

electric potential is potential energy per charge, so is in joules per coulomb, or volts.

(I've no idea what everyone else is hinting at )

I just found it that there was a typo in the problem. The teacher meant to say joules not volts.
