Equipotential planes and electric fields.

  1. Feb 1, 2007 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    Suppose a uniform electric field of magnitude 115.0 N/C exists in a region of space. How far apart are a pair of equipotential surfaces whose potentials differ by 2.0 V?


    2. Relevant equations

    1 N/C = 1 V/m

    3. The attempt at a solution

    I know 115.0 N/C is the same as 115.0 V/m and it seems i should just divide it by 2.0 V.

    2 / 115 = .017 m but this isn't correct. Any suggestions?
