# Non Uniform Electric Field

p.d. between A and B is V and the electric field between A and B is *non* uniform. If a particle of charge Q travels from A to B, what is the energy gained by the particle.

Is the answer VQ even if the field is non uniform?

Yes. It only depends on the potential difference

If you are interested in more (this is outside A level), this is due to the electric field being conservative, i.e the line integral from A to B does not depend on the path taken from A to B.
