Determine the energy required to move 260C through 6V.

2. Relevant equations

q = Cv

U = (1/2)*C*v^2

3. The attempt at a solution

C = q/v = 260C/6V = 130/3 F

U = (1/2)(130/3 F)(6V)^2 = 780J

I applied the voltage/charge relationship and energy equation for a capacitor because they seemed to be the only equations that made sense with the given values, but I'm not certain this is correct. If someone could let me know if I'm going about this correctly it would be appreciated. Thanks.
