Hi everyone I need very badly some help with this problem please:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

A force of 0.053 N is required to move a charge of 39 µC a distance of 30 cm in an electric field. What is the size of the electric potential difference between the two points?

Is the electric potential difference the force divided by q (whatever that is) divided by distance? That's what someone told me. I can't find q though. Is that even the right way to to it?

I'm not really sure how to do this at all. I tried to do it for more than an hour yesterday but my teacher is TERRIBLE and I don't get it. The book doesn't really help either. Can someone solve it and guide me through it?

Thanks a whole lot!
