Electric field lines always point toward: (_) positive charge (_) a region of higher potential (_) ground (_) a region of lower potential (X) none of these Now, i thought that electric fields point towards the negative charge. I submitted my homework, and i missed it. I was just wondering if anyone could explain to me why electric field lines dont point toward a negative charge. Everything i read lead me to that conclusion, so i put "none of these" and missed it. Is the correct answer "a region of lower potential" I'd just like to know cause i thought i did, but apparantly didnt.
