I am a little bit confused between electric potential and electric potential energy i know that electeric potential energy is the work need to get a charge from infinity to location P while clearly understood but i do not get the pork per unit charge an example would make everything perfect
As the work done does not depend on the path taken, it seems this potential energy can be represented by a property of the point in space where the test charge lies. As the energy is proportional to the value of the test charge q, dividing by q leaves you with a quantity independent of q, that can be expressed in volts and that is a property of space at the point where you are. This quantity is called the electric potential and can be related simply to the electric field at the same point.
MMM thanks alot it was really helpful
