A possible set of units of electric field, E, in terms of base units is:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

a) kg x m x s^-1 x C^-2

b) kg x m^2 x s^-2 x C^-1

c) kg x m x s^-2 x C^-1

d) C x s^-1

e) N x C^-1

I believe it is E but i wondering if there is somthing I am missing. This is how I came up with that answer

E = kq/r^2

E = Nm^2/C^2 x C / m^2

= Nm^2 x C / C^2 x m^2

It says to use base units so for Newton am i suppose to incorporate a kg? I know that the unit for E is N/C but this problem just seems like it would be too easy if that was the answer
