. Homework Statement
If the electric field does negative work on a negative charge as the charge undergoes a displacement from position a to b within an electric field then the electrical potential energy is?
The Attempt at a Solution
So I know that W = -deltaU, and thus, if we have a negative coefficient for W, we would get a positive coefficient for deltaU, resulting in positive electrical potential energy.
How could I think this problem through if I completely forgot the equation and just thought conceptually?
Thanks in advance!
