Absolute potential Absolute potential at an arbitrary point A: The absolute potential at location A is defined as the amount of work that must be done to move a unit charge from the infinity to location A - = A A l d E V Relationship between relative potential and absolute potential A B AB V V V - = Unless otherwise specified, we assume zero potential point is at inf!!!
