Electrostatic Potential And Capacitance
Electrostatic Potential energy
Work done by an external force in bringing a charge q from a point R to a point P in electric field of a certain charge configuration is , which is the difference in potential energy of charge q between the final and initial points.
Potential energy at a point is the work done by an external force in moving a charge from infinity to that point.
- Electrostatic potential at any point in a region of electrostatic field is the minimum work done in carrying a unit positive charge (without acceleration) from infinity to that point.
Electric potential due to a point charge of magnitude q at a distance r from the charge is given as
Potential difference between two points P and R can…
