1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data The work required to bring a negatively charged body from very far to either of the points indicated in the figure is greatest for point _____. a. point A b. point B c. point C d. point D e. point E 2. Relevant equations U = q_0*V or W (a-b) = (q*q_0)/(4*pi*epsilon_0)*[(1/r_a) -(1/r_b)] 3. The attempt at a solution The negatively charged particle is moving against the electric field. As indicated by the equipotential lines, the electric field is strongest near the positive charge, so the potential V is greatest near the positive charge. If V is greatest at E, then won't the work at this point be greatest? (Or did I reverse it since a negative charge is involved and q*q_0 is negative?) Thanks.
