## Homework Statement

Hi everybody! Here I am with another problem of electromagnetism, I'd like to make sure I understand it properly!

An electron is moved 1 meter towards an homogeneous electric field of strength 1N/C. How big is the work done for this motion?

## Homework Equations

[tex] F = q \cdot E [/tex]

## The Attempt at a Solution

Here is what I've done:

[tex] W = F \cdot d = q \cdot E \cdot d = -1.6 \cdot 10^{-19} C \cdot 1 \frac{N}{C} \cdot 1m = -1.6 \cdot 10^{-19} N \cdot m [/tex]

It seems a little too easy... Is that correct?

Thanks a lot for your help.

Julien.
