# Electrical work

Electrical work is the work done on a charged particle by an electric field. This energy is similar to mechanical work in that the equation for electrical work is of the same form:

$W = q int_\left\{i\right\}^\left\{f\right\} E cdot , dr$

where

q is the charge of the particle
E is the strength of the electric field
r is the distance
