I have been trying to grasp the concept of work and electric potential energy inbetween two parallel plates with a uniform electric field and it is quite confusing. can someone explain when is work done = negative electric potential and when is it positive electric potential. i have been trying to figure this out for 3 days now please tell me straight forward.
The Attempt at a Solution
I have looked throught textbook, online, this forums, and asked my professor. and no one has really helped me understand this concept. i know what potential energy ke and work is. i understand gravitational pe but not electrical. please someone explain.
