Homework Help: physics

Posted by Samantha on Monday, February 25, 2008 at 2:22am.

At a certain distance from a point charge, the potential due to the charge is |5.93 V, and the magnitude of the electric field is 13.5 V/m. (Take the potential to be zero at infinity.) Is the electric field directed toward or away from the charge?

Here is my attempt. Since potential due to charge is -, work done must be -. Therefore the electric field must be directed away from the charge. Is this correct???
