    A uniform electric field of magnitude 250 V/m is directed in the positive x direction. A +12.0 micro coloumb charge moves from the origin to the point (x, y) = (20.0 cm, 50.0 cm).
    a) What is the change in the potential energy of the charge-field system?
    b) Through what potential difference does the charge move?
