Homework Help: physics

Posted by Samantha on Monday, February 25, 2008 at 12:55am.

The figure shows two points in an E-field: Point 1 is at (X1,Y1) = (3,4), and point 2 is at (X2,Y2) = (12,9), with coordinates in meters. The electric field is constant, with a magnitude of 53 V/m, and is directed parallel to the +x axis. The potential at point 1 is 1200 V. Calculate the potential at point 2.

This is what I did. V=PE/q' so V is proportional to the distance. Since point 2's horizontal distance is 4 times greater. I multiplied point 1's 1200V by 4. But it was wrong. How do I get the correct answer?
