Electric Potential
10113041010608Electric PotentialThe electrostatic force is conservative, and thus we can introduce a potential energy and use the powerful techniques of energy conservation in solving problems.
Electric Potential and Potential Energy Consider a charge q in an electric field E. The electric field exerts a force qE on the charge, and if you want to move the charge, you must exert a force −qE on it. If in so doing, you mov…
