The change in electrostatic potential energy at a point when an electron is brought from infinity to that point is deltaE.What is the change in electrostatic potential energy if the electron is moved through a distance d from this point?

  • physics -

    That depends upon the direction that the electron is moved. You also need to define the location of equipotential lines.
