Potential and potential difference Potential is the amount of electric energy carried by a coulomb of charge (J/C, V) differencePotential difference is the difference in potential between two points. (J/C, V) The difference can be due to : Consumption (used by a lamp, TV) Energy supply (supplied by a battery) What is the potential difference before and after a battery of e.m.f of 1.5 V? 1.5V
Potential difference ( 電位差 ) Potential difference is the amount of electric energy per coulomb of charge changed into other forms of energy across/between two points in a circuit. e.g. potential difference of a battery of 1.5V = 1.5 J of energy changed from chemical to electrical per coulomb of charge
Potential difference ( 電位差 ) Potential difference is the amount of electric energy per coulomb of charge changed into other forms of energy across/between two points in a circuit. e.g. potential difference of lamp of 12 V = 12 J of energy changed from electrical energy to light and heat energy.
