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

at a distance of 1.0 m from a point charge, the electric field is 40 J/C. What is the electric field at a distance of 2.0 m from the point charge?

3. The attempt at a solution

so, i understand that the elecric field should be = charge/distance(squared).

so I did:

40/(2^2) = 10 J/C

Is this correct or am i missing something? thanks
