Problem 3Q

State clearly the difference (a) between electric potential and electric field, (b) between electric potential and electric potential energy.

Step-by-Step Solution:

Step-by-step solution

Step 1 of 2</p>

(a)

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.
