- Homework Statement
- Why do we have a charge in the denominator of equations for voltage and el. potential if both voltage and el. potential are not dependent on charge?

- Relevant Equations
- U=W/q, fi=Eep/q (fi=el. potential, Eep= el. pot. energy, U= voltage)

Why do we have a charge in the denominator of equations for voltage and el. potential if both voltage and el. potential are not dependent on charge?

Is it just because that was the only way to derive the formula for voltage and then we realized we don't need q? U=W/q --> U=eqd/q.
