Textbook Problem

If an electron is released from rest in a uniform electric field, does the electric potential energy of the charge-field system (a) increase, (b) decrease, or (c) remain the same?

To determine
The potential energy of the charge field system.

Explanation
Electron is a negatively charged particle. When it is released from rest in uniform electric field, electric force causes acceleration in the direction opposite to the electric field. Because of the negative charge, electron goes to higher potential.

Conclusion:

There is a decrease in potential energy...
