Homework Help: Potential difference

  1. Apr 4, 2010 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    if 1.0 joule of work is required to move 1.0 coulomb of charge between two point in an eletric field the potential difference between the two point is

    1) 1 .0 x 10 exponenet 0 v
    2) 9.0 x 10 exponenet 9 v
    3) 6.3 x 10 exponenet 18 v
    4) 1.6 x 10 expeonent -19 v

    2. Relevant equations

    i think there is an equation for it does anyone know?

    3. The attempt at a solution

    not sure need equation

    Hi zelda1850! :smile:

    (try using the X2 tag just above the Reply box :wink:)

    Potential difference = potential energy per charge, and work is a form of energy. :wink:
