potential

Expert Answer:

If the potential at a point is 5V, then that means that 5J of work would be done to bring a test charge of 1C from infinity to that point in space. 
 
So, basically potential at a given point refers to the amount of energy that would be spent in bringing a unit charge from infinity to that point.
