1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data When is electric potential negative and when is it positive? 2. Relevant equations V=Es 3. The attempt at a solution I first thought that when you are moving in the same direction as the electric field the electric potential will be a positive value. However I across a problem in which you are moving a charge in the positive x direction the electric field is also in the positive x direction, and yet the answer is a negative value. Can someone please help and explain this to me in easy terms? I searched for an answer, but I am still confused. Thank you!
