# Work by E-Field to Move Charge

SATPHY-EKWLYE

Given the diagram below with positive and negative charges separated by the distance $d$, how much work (in Joules) would the electric field created by the pictured charges do on a separate $+1.0\ C$ charge in moving it from point $A$ to point $B$?

The blue charge is negative. The red charge is positive.

Answers are expressed in terms of $k$ (the coulomb constant) and given distances.

A

$\frac { k }{ 2d }$

B

$\frac { -k }{ 2d }$

C

$\frac { k }{ 4d }$

D

$\frac { -k }{ 4d }$

E

$\frac { -k }{ d }$
