## Homework Statement

A given system has the equipotential surfaces shown in the figure .

A)What is the magnitude of the electric field?

B)What is the direction of the electric field? (in degrees from the +x axis)

C)What is the shortest distance one can move to undergo a change in potential of 1.50 V?

## Homework Equations

E=-V/R

## The Attempt at a Solution

I found the answer to the Part A:

E= -V/R, R=4sin(26.565)

E=559 V/M

I cannot wrap my head around the answer to Part B, though. I thought it would simply be 180-25.65, but that's wrong. Any help?

I also know how to do Part C, so just Part B would be great!
