# A free negative charge released in an electric field will

Asked by wiki @ in Physics viewed by 153 People

If a negative charge is released in a uniform electric field, it will move

A. from low to high potnetial
B. in ciruclar motion
C. in the direction of the electric field
D. from high to low potential
E. In a direction perpendicular to the electric field

Answer: A. From low potential to high potential

Explanation:

An electric field has direction from positive i.e. higher potential to negative that is lower potential. A positive charge would be move in the direction of the electric field that is from higher potential to lower potential. On the other hand, a negative charge would move opposite to the direction of the electric field i.e it would be attracted towards the positive and thus, would move from lower potential to higher.
