The electric potential along the x-axis (in kv) is plotted versus the value of x, (in meters). Evaluate the x-component of the electrical force (in Newtons)on a charge of 2.10 micro-C located on the x-axis at x=-3.6 m.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Ok I 'm doing Ex=-dV/dx. I get the slope to be (-7500 N/C) from doing -(5Kv-20kV)/(0m-2m). Then I am multiplying -7500N/C by the charge of 2.10 mC to get .01575 N and I need an answer in N so I thought this was right, and it's not lol. Help?
