    You need to put a bit more thought into your post. What do you mean by "co-relate"?

    I don't think "electrostatic potential difference" is a useful term. I suppose it means the same thing as electric potential difference as long as you are working with an electrostatic system. Electrostatic means you are working in a system where there are no moving charges.
