Can someone just confirm the following: Change in potential energy of a charge, for example caused by moving two negative charges together is equal to the work done: Work done = Force x Distance = -qE * ∆X (Where E is electric field strength) = -qE∆X = -q∆V Which therefore is a different quantity to the electric potential we know as simply Volts, which is (Work Done)/(q). I am fine actually using these different values in equations and the like, I would just like more information about what it all means. Is electric potential (Volts) simply a measure of Volts per unit charge? Or is it more complex than that? Probably a silly question really, but just like to be clear about these things.
