Homework Help: EMF and Energy

  1. Apr 1, 2010 #1
    Hai - Im revising and now Im confused - equations for both electromotive force (emf) and energy begin E=.... (in different sections of my electricity notes)

    Does that mean EMF is a type of energy or am I missing something?

    Thanks :)

    Hi mushroom993! Welcome to PF! :smile:

    It's just a coincidence … they both happen to begin with the letter "E". :biggrin:

    (partly for that reason, some books use a curly E for emf)
