My question is how is electrical potential actually transmitted through an electric circuit. A charge (i.e. and electron) is moved through an magnetic field (as in a generator), the particle gains electric potential due to the work performed on it in the generator. This potential is then used elsewhere in a circuit (e.g. a motor or transformer) to do useful work. How is the potential acually stored in the electron? If this were a gaseous system, the potential would be represented as an increase in pressure, manifested as higher temperatures and tighter packing of the molecules. If this were a physical system, the potential energy might be manifested as balls lifted higher in a gravitational field, capable of doing work as the fall. What is the mechanism for our electron? Faster motion or increased vibration? Thanks.
