Please wait for the animation to completely load.

An electron is moved through a region with an electric potential defined by the equipotential lines shown (position is given in meters, time is given in seconds, and electric potential is given in volts). Restart. Rank the work done by the external force (smallest to greatest) for Animations 1--5. Explain the basis for your ranking.
