Textbook Problem

An electric field does 1.50 × 103 eV of work on a carbon nucleus of charge 9.61 × 10−19 C. Find the change in the nucleus’ (a) electric potential and (b) electric potential energy in joules.

(a)

To determine
The electric potential.

Explanation

Given info: The work done by electric field is 1.50×103eV . The charge on the nucleus is 9.61×1019C .

Explanation:

Formula to calculate the electric potential is,

V=Wq

  • W is the work done.
  • q is the charge.

Substitute 1.50×103eV for W and 9.61×1019C for q.

V=1.50×103eV9

(b)

To determine
The electric potential energy.
