1. If the electrical potential across a conducting metal rod of length L is V, how much work is done in moving a charge of +ne across the length of the rod, from low to high potential? 2. Equation that I used: delta U = q * V 3. This is what I thought: the charge moves from low to high potential, so the work done (by the electric field) has to be negative (so W = -neV). The answer was W = +neV. Is my thought process incorrect, or should the question have been more specific and ask for exactly the work it was looking for (Work done by electric field or work done by external force)?
