Textbook Problem

If a negatively charged particle is placed at rest in an electric potential field that increases in the positive x-direction, will the panicle (a) accelerate in the positive x-direction, (b) accelerate in the negative x-direction, or (c) remain at rest?

To determine
The acceleration of the particle.

Explanation

Electron is a negatively charged particle. It moves to the region with higher potential.

Conclusion:

The potential is increasing along +x direction. Therefore, electron accelerates towards +x direction. Thus, option (a) is correct...
