I am confused about an electron ( or any negative charge) moving in a uniform E field. If the electron moves in the opposite direction of the electric field, and the E field points in the direction of greatest decrease in potential, then it seems like the electron is moving in the direction of increasing potential.
I know this is wrong, and I must be missing a negative sign somewhere. Can someone please correct me?
Thank you
