Dear student,

Electric field at a point is given asE=-\dfrac{dV}{dr}

Hence in the figure, it is given as the negative of the slope of the line at that point.

The slope of the line at R=5m is -2V/m, hence the electric field at that point is2V/m.

Dear student,
Please find the solution to your problem.
 
Electric field at a point is given as, E = – dV/dr
Hence in the figure, it is given as the negative of the slope of the line at that point.
The slope of the line at R=5m is –2 V/m, hence the electric field at that point is 2 V/m.
 
Thanks and regards,
