PHY2061 R. D. Field Department of Physics chp28_9.doc University of Florida Stored Electric Potential Energy For a conductor with charge Q: The potential energy Uis the workrequired to assemble the final charge configuration starting from an inital condition of infinite separation. For a conductor the total charge Q resides on the surface QdqdA==∫∫σAlso, V is constant on and inside the conductor and dUdQV
