The potential difference is

See the step by step solution

Step by Step Solution

Step 1 : Given information and formula used

Given :

; and

Uniform electric field :

Formula used :

Step 2 : Calculating the required the potential difference

We'll assume the -component of the position is the same for both positions because we don't know anything about it; for example, both positions are measured along the -axis.

will be the difference in the -component.

With this knowledge, the potential difference will be :
