k = 8.99 x 109 Nm2C-2
1. Convert 5 x 10-13 J to MeV.
2. Convert 0.9 GeV to J.
3. What is the potential energy of an electron at the negatively charged plate of a uniform electric field when the potential difference between the two plates is 100V?
4. What is the potential energy of a 2C charge 2cm from a 0.5C charge?
Remember, coulombs are big!
5. What is represented by the gradient of a graph of electric potential energy against distance from some charge?
Force exerted on the charge with that energy.
