^Electrostatic potential (V)
Electrostatic potential (V)
Electrostatic potential energy per unit victim charge is called electrostatic potential i.e. using this result & F = q E, LCF can be expressed as .
If a charge particle is moved from ∞ → P, then the above relation can be expressed as
Choice of potential is arbitrary & matter of Convenience, usually we assume V = 0 at infinity.
Bothe field & potential are high when observation point is near a positive charge. Whereas near a negative charge field is high & potential is low.
