Relating Electric Feild and Electric Potential

  1. Jan 30, 2010 #1
    Looking at the equations for electric field and for electric potential:

    The electric field equation:
    E = 4*pi*k*sigma / (- (base zero)

    The electric potential equation:
    /\U (base E) = -W(base E) = -q*E*d

    /\ - delta

    Could someone help me figure out their relationship? im kinda lost.
