Homework Help: How to find the size of the electric potential difference between two points?

  1. Apr 28, 2008 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    A force of .053 N is required to move a charge of 37 microCoulombs a distance of .25m in an electric field. What is the size of the electric potential difference between the two points?

    2. Relevant equations


    3. The attempt at a solution

    I'm really stuck...

    No equations AT ALL? Potential difference is the work required to move a unit charge between two points. Work is equal to force times distance. Try translating those into Relevant equations and applying them.
