why does negative charge flow from lower potential to higher potential
Asked by kaziryan.05 | 19th Mar, 2021, 08:46: PM
If there is potential gradient exist in a region, then we have electric field exist in this region.
Charge particle experience force (q×E) in electric field , where q is magnitude of charge and E is electric
field intensity. Negative charge particle moves in a direction opposite to the direction of electric field.
In electric field , direction of low potential region to high potential is opposite to the direction of electric field.
Hence negative charge moves from low potential region to high potential region.

- the electrical potential on the surface of a hollow sphere is 40V. its radius is 2 m. find the electrical potential near the centre of this hollow sphere.
- what is electric potential??
- kindly solve this problem....
- What is the difference between potential energy, potential difference and voltage?
- Question:A test charge is moved from lower potential point to higher potential point. The potential energy of point charge will....remain same/increase/decrease/zero?
- a charge of 30nc produces electric field at point 0.8m and 1.2m away from the charge along a straight line in the same side find the potential at these points and also find the work do e to move a charge of 2nc between these points
- Two metal spheres each of mass 1 gmail and radius 0.5 cm are placed on a smooth horizontal insulated plate such that their centres are 15 cm apart. One is charged to a potential of 500 volt and the other to 100 volt. What is the velocity of each sphere when they drift away to a distance of 30 cm between their centres?
