(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

A constant electric field of magnitude E = 120 V/m points in the positive x-direction. How much work (in J) does it take to move the charge Q =11 μC from x1 = -67 m, y1 = -36 m, to x2 = 98 m, y2 = 75 m?

2. Relevant equations

You see thats the problem... I have no idea

3. The attempt at a solution

Its not much of an attempt but i know work is force times displacement right? So its just the force needed to move it times how far it is moved. But i dont know how to find the force needed to move it
