## Homework Statement

The figure below shows two points in an electric field. Point 1 is at (X1,Y1) = (3,4), and point 2 is at (X2,Y2) = (12,9). (The coordinates are given in meters.) The electric field is constant with a magnitude of 59.3 V/m, and is directed parallel to the +X-axis. The potential at point 1 is 1200.0 V.

## Homework Equations

Vf-Vi = -Integral from i to f (E*ds)

## The Attempt at a Solution

I set Vi=1200V

E = 59.3 N/C

and tried to solve for Vf

I found the distance by making a triangle connecting the two points to be the sqrt(106) and the angle formed to be 29deg. I took the cos(29) and brought that out of the integral(Im not sure if that's right, but I saw my book take the cosine of the angle so I did too).

Vf-1200 = -59.3*cos(29)*integral(from i to f) of (ds)

I solved for Vf and got 1148 V, but that's wrong. Any suggestions
