What is the relationship between electric potential energy and potential difference?

What is the relationship between electric potential energy and potential difference?

Electric potential energy Ue is the potential energy stored when charges are out of equilibrium (like gravitational potential energy). Electric potential is the same, but per charge, Ueq. An electric potential difference between two points is called voltage, V=Ue2q−Ue1q.

What is the relationship of potential energy?

The relationship between potential energy and kinetic energy is that potential energy can transform into kinetic energy. Potential energy is position relative. In other words, it changes depending on an object’s height or distance and the mass of the object.

What is the relationship between total energy potential energy and kinetic energy?

The Total Mechanical Energy As already mentioned, the mechanical energy of an object can be the result of its motion (i.e., kinetic energy) and/or the result of its stored energy of position (i.e., potential energy). The total amount of mechanical energy is merely the sum of the potential energy and the kinetic energy.

Why is u the symbol for potential energy?

U is the letter most similar to V – there are lots of times when, if V is used as a variable for a concept, then U is a variable for a similar concept. So potential energy became U, because someone might have been trying to make a connection with potential voltage.

What kind of potential energy do you put inside your body in order to live?

(Chemical potential energy is actually a form of electric potential energy, but we will not specifically discuss electric potential energy in this textbook so we have separated the two.)…The Energetic Functions of the Body.
