Hello, Im wondering if Im thinking about electric potential correctly:
Stop me if I am wrong:
V=electric potential, the electric potential is created by source charges altering space around them.
If you place a test charge, q, within that space we can say it experiences electric potential energy U.
My book gives me an equation V=Uq + sources/q.
since energy is conserved could we say ΔU=-ΔK? furthermore could we say ΔU=-W?
If so I see many possibilities of equations for V.
For a constant electric Field I know that U=qEd, therefore V=qEd/q=Ed
I believe this is just for a constant electric field...
How would the equations change for a non-constant electric field?
I have all these equations and have an okay understanding of them but when I do problems things are just not clicking...any advice/input would be appreciated
