what is the difference between electric potential and electric potential difference?
Asked by | 8th Apr, 2009, 07:13: PM
The electric potenial at a point in an electric field is the work required to bring a unit positive charge from infinity to that point. ( V = W / Q )
The electric potential difference between two points in an electric field is the work done in moving a unit positive charge from one point to another. ( V1 - V2 = W/Q ).
