## Homework Statement

There is a uniform electric field=100 V/m inclined at 45 degrees with the x axis. My doubt boils to which is greater? V(0,0) or V(10√2,0) (since my answer has the wrong sign)

## Homework Equations

All electrostatics formulas

## The Attempt at a Solution

The work done to move a unit positive charge from origin to (10√2,0) is component of E on x axis*1 C*displacement. which works out to +1000 (since Force and displacement are in the same direction). Now W=-ΔU and ΔU/1 C =ΔV=-1000 but the answer is +1000. I would appreciate some help, thank you
