# A positive charge is moved from a low potential point A to a high potential point B. Then the electric potential energy

Q: A positive charge is moved from a low potential point A to a high potential point B. Then the electric potential energy:

(a) Increases

(b) decreases

(c) will remain the same

(d) nothing definite can be predicted

Ans: (a)

Sol: $\large \Delta U = q (V_B – V_A )$

$\large \Delta U = q \Delta V$

As ΔV increases , so ΔU increases .
