Electric Field As Derivative of Potential Video Lessons

Concept

# Problem: Suppose you have an electric field between two parallel conducting plates separated by 0.45 cm and having a potential difference (voltage) between them of 1.9 x 104 VWhat is the strength of such an electric field in newtons per coulomb?

###### FREE Expert Solution

Electric field:

$\overline{){\mathbf{E}}{\mathbf{=}}{\mathbf{-}}\frac{\mathbf{∆}\mathbf{V}}{\mathbf{∆}\mathbf{x}}}$

1 V/m = 1N/C
