Unformatted text preview: lectrical potential energy. V potential stores UE w/ test q2 At the same time, it will move from a position of
higher potential to a position of lower potential.
Its kinetic energy will increase (E is conserved). Electric Potential When a negative charge is placed in an electric
It feels an electric force in the opposite
direction of the electric ﬁeld.
If there are no other forces, it will move in the
direction opposite of the electric ﬁeld.
With this resulting motion it will decrease its
electrical potential energy.
But it will move from a position of lower
potential to a position of higher potential.
Its kinetic energy will increase (E is conserved). Electric Potential
The lessons we have learned from examining
electric potential energy and electric potential
Electric potential only depends on your position
in the electric ﬁeld.
Electric potential energy will also d...
