In the steady-state case we associated this electric field with a potential difference in volts, ΔV = − ∫AB E · ds. We further identified the potential with the potential energy of a charge q as U = qV. However, as we shall see later, it is possible to create electric fields, such as by magnetic induction, that are not conservative, and for them there is no potential energy to be def…
