What is Potential?
| 66 views

Potential is the capability of doing work.

Any charge has the capability of doing work of moving another charge either by attraction or repulsion.

The electric potential at a point is the electric potential energy per unit charge.

Electric potential, V = $\frac{Electric potential energy}{Charge}$ = $\frac{W}{Q}$
