What is potential difference? Give its unit with definition.

Tutor

work done in moving a unit +ve charge from one point A to B in an electric field is known as the potential difference between point A&B. It's unit is volt

It's the difference between the electric potential at two points which equals the work done in moving 1 coulomb of charge between the two points in question, measured in Volts or V (which is the SI unit) but that's not a good answer. Imagine moving a unit positive charge against a static electric field.... read more

It's the difference between the electric potential at two points which equals the work done in moving 1 coulomb of charge between the two points in question, measured in Volts or V (which is the SI unit) but that's not a good answer. Imagine moving a unit positive charge against a static electric field. This would require work bring done by an external force which gets stored as the difference in electric potential energy of the unit charge. This difference in the "potential of that unit charge is exactly what voltage difference between two points is!

It is amount of work done in moving a unit positive test charge from one point to another . Its s.i unit is volt . .1V = 1J/1C Where j=joule and C = coloumb

Potential difference is the difference between two points that represents the work involved or the energy released in the transfer of a unit quantity of electricity from one point to the other. The si unit of potential difference is V or Volt.

THE AMOUNT OF WORK DONE IN MOVING A CHARGE FROM ONE POINT TO ANOTHER IS CALLED AS POTENTIAL DIFFERENCE V=W/Q. THE UNIT OF POTENTIAL DIFFERENCE IS VOLT(V).

In electricity P. D. Is the amount of work done in carrying a charge from one point to another P. D=W/q it is a scalar quantity unit being volt that is 1V=1j/1C hope this satisfies you .Sukhendu bangalore

The energy possessed by an object due to the virtue of its shape or position is called as potential energy.It's unit is same as the unitin of energy as it itself is a former of energy.Hence it's unit is joules. Hopes so it was sufficient.If any doubt still remains text me.I'll help u out.
