Can give me a physical meaning of electrostatic potential and potentizl energy

Expert Answer:

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.
