Consider the electric field created by a very long charged line of negative linear charge density -2.50 nC/m.

A small positive point charge of 8 mC moves from a distance of 9 cm to a distance of 17 cm.

How much work is done by the electric field?

Hint: The electric field for a long charged line is:

Express the result in the unit mJ and to three significant figures.
