A particle of charge q > 0 moves in a uniform electric field E under no external force for a total distance d starting from rest

Part (a) Suppose the field is varying according to E = (2/11) Ayj, where y is the vertical coordinate. The charge q travels from point y1 to point y2, where the total traveled distance is d. Taking y1 = 0, enter an expression for the potential difference that the charge traverses in terms of the available symbols

Part (c) If the charge q = 4.72 C, distance, d = 82m and the constant A = 14.7 V/m2,  how much work, in Jules, is done on the charge while it travels the potential difference in part (a)?
