U=qV is correct.

The force is different, so don’t get confused about that. The force on a positive charge points in the direction of decreasing potential.

positive

hi, thanks for your answer! so U=qV would only be negative if F=qE --> q=F/E (force is negative) here?U=qV is correct.

The change in U=qV would be negative if q moves in the direction of F=qE here?
