What is the electrostatic potential energy of an isolated spherical conductor of radius 24 cm that is charged to 3.9 kV?

2. Relevant equations

Electric potential

U = (kQ)/r

3. The attempt at a solution

U = ((8.99 * 10^{9}) * (3.9 * 10^{3})/(0.24)

Could someone walk me through how to do this? Its a simple problem I know...but i'm not understanding it, thanks!
