E = electric field V = electrostatic potential r = distance ' = derivative
- E = - (V)'
therefore if E increases V decreases
- Also if r increases E decreases because E=kq/r^2
- From 1 & 2, if r increases then V increases
- But V=kq/r, so if r increases V decreases
Why does the 3rd point contradict with the 4th ?
