Electric Fields and Potential Difference. Combining Formulae

  1. Jan 21, 2012 #1
    Determine how far apart two parallel plates must be situated so that a potential difference of 2.50*10^2 V produces an electric field strength of 2.00*10^3 N/C


    I cannot even figure out which formulae to combine...

    You should remember that electric field strength can be measured in units N/C or V/m; they are equivalent sets of units.
