#### Answer

The correct answer is: (f) both N/C and V/m

#### Work Step by Step

The force experienced by a charge $q$ in an electric field $E$ is $F = E~q$. Since $F$ is measured in units of $newtons$ and charge $q$ is measured in units of $coulombs$, the electric field $E$ must be measured in $N/C$ $N/C = (N~m)/(C~m) = J/(C~m) = V/m$ The correct answer is: (f) both N/C and V/m
