When we have two charged particles interacting, there is a difference between potential energy and electric potential. A.True B.False

The units on electric potential energy are A.Volts B.Coulombs C.Joules D.Newtons

Assuming that we have a electric field between a positive plate and a negative plate and that the field does positive work on a particle, the electric potential energy of the particle A.Increases B.Decreases C.Increases or decreases depending upon the sign of the charge of the particle

The units on electric potential are A.Volts B.Coulombs C.Joules D.Newtons

Points in an electric field where a particle will have the same electric potential energy are found along A.The electric field lines B.The equipotential surfaces/lines C.Does not apply, no two locations will ever have the same electric potential energy.

It is possible for a particle to move in an electric field without the electric potential energy changing. A.True B.False C.The question makes no sense.
