# Problem: 1. Calculate the magnitude of the constant electric field that exists in the space between two parallel conducting plates. The plates are separated by 1.00 cm and there is a potential difference between them of 1.50x104 V2. The magnitude of the electric field produced by two parallel plates is 7.50x104 N/C. The plates are 4.00 cm apart from each other as illustrated.(a) Calculate the potential difference between the plates:(b) Point A is 1.00 cm from the left plate. Point B is 1.00 cm from the right plate. What is the potential difference between points A and B?(c) Which point, A or B, is at higher potential?(d) If the potential at A is 28.0 V, what is the potential at B?(e) A positive charge qo = +0.250 C is moved from A to B, following the illustrated diagonal path. Calculate the work done by the field during the displacement of this particle:(f) The work calculates in part (e) is either positive or negative. Explain why the sign of your calculation makes sense in this case:
