    \[W=-\triangle U=-\int F\cdot dl=-\int_{x_1}^{x_2} Fdx=-kq_1q_2\int_{x_1}^{x_2}\frac{dr}{r^2}=-\frac{-kq_1q_2}{r}\] I figured that \[q=\sigma A\] I'm told that the charge densities are equal and opposite on the two large plates.

    Oh and we're moving an electron from the negatively charged plate to the positively charged plate.

    I have to calculate the work done to move an electron from the negative plate to the positive plate.

    |dw:1361318208383:dw| This is the force I need to overcome correct?

    there is no resistance force to overcome, just the inertia of the electron moving due to the E field

    but the electric field is pointing in the opposite direction of where the electron is moving to

    but the E-field points in the direction that a *positive* test charge would move. After all, an electron wants to go from negative to positive, right? Like repels like and so forth...

    In that case: \[W=-\triangle U=-q\triangle\] q= is the charge of an electron correct?

    I would say the elementary charge is \(q=-e\)\[W=-\int(-e)\vec E\cdot d\vec\ell=-e\int Edx\]Note that three negatives multiply to give a negative result. One negative from the charge, one from the fact that a positive charge moving along the E field lines goes down in energy, and one from the fact that E and the direction of motion are antiparallel.

    I mean if I'm given delta V and I know e ....I should be able to just multiply those to get delta U

    since KE=U the kinetic energy would be the same correct?
