State clearly the difference (a) between electric potential and electric field, (b) between electric potential and electric potential energy.
Step 1 of 2</p>
Electric field is a the field that is produced by a source charge directed outward from that source charge or inward to that source charge. Electric potential is the electric field potential at a point which decreases as we go down the electric field. Electric potential defines the point electrically has a potential which is hidden until we place a charge at that point.
Electric potential at point shows that the electrical potential energy of a unit charge at that point
Electric potential is a scalar and its unit is Volt
Electric field is vector and its unit is N/C.
