In the chapter problems, #46, the answer is given as 18V. If there is positive work done and the charge is negative, shouldn&amp;#x27;t the potential difference be negative as well?
Eric, the work done by the electric field is equal to W = -q delta V. Since q is negative and the work done is positive, delta V will be positive. The work done by an external force would be + q delta V.
