Textbook Problem

If a negatively charged particle is placed at point B in Figure 16.3 and given a very small kick to the right, what will its subsequent motion be? Will it (a) go to the right and not return, (b) go to the left, (c) remain at point B, or (d) oscillate around point B?

To determine
The motion of the particle.

Explanation

The particle is negatively charged. Therefore, it goes from lower potential to higher potential.

Conclusion:

The potential energy of the particle decreases as the potential increases. The particle oscillates at B since the point corresponds to potential minimum for negatively charged particles...
