What is the separation between the two surfaces

  1. Jul 8, 2014 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    You measure a uniform electric field of 13.3 x 10^3 N/C between two equipotential surfaces. One surface is at a potential of 1543 V and the other is at 951 V. What is the separation between the two surfaces?

    2. Relevant equations
    Eave = - deltaV/delta x


    3. The attempt at a solution
    After rewriting the equation I did delta x = (1543V-951V)/(13.3 x 10^3) N/C

    I am not sure I am doing this right

    Thanks for any help!
