## Homework Statement

It is not an actual questions, Just misconceptions

For example,

Lets find the work done over a distance in an electric field

## Homework Equations

v = PE/q

E = F/q

F = k q1 q2 /r^2

W = fd

## The Attempt at a Solution

I didn't study calculus yet but I am going to because I need to get to know these equations.

I know that I can't use the formula w = f d because obviously the f varies if I don't have a uniform EF

these equations only take place when the electric field is constant otherwise I need to use calculus to find the equation because the forces varies with distance.

So in V = PE/C

I can't just substitute PE with F d... so if you are able to put the proof of V = kq/r (If it is related to calculus) that would be great so I can check it when I am done with calculus.
