Can give me a physical meaning of electrostatic potential and potentizl energy
Asked by jishnu1994 | 15th Jul, 2011, 12:00: AM
Physically, electrostatic potential at a point in a region of electrostatic field implies the work done in carrying a unit positive charge from infinity to that point without any acceleration.
And potential energy of a charge q at a point in a region of electrostatic field due to any charge configuration is the work done by external force in bringing the charge q from infinity to that point without any acceleration.
