Electric Field and Potential Abstract The relationship between electric field, electrical potential, and voltage were studied by creating simulated charge distributions and mapping their equipotential and electric field lines within their loci. Introduction The local maxima and minima of electric potentials of a particular location are created by the electric charge distributions. Electric potential is the energy per unit of charge at a specific location and is measured in volts. The electric potential can be determined by the difference of two equipotentials. Equipotential are lines that consist of the same electric potential. Perpendicular to the equipotential lines is the electric field lines, or the electric force per unit charge that is acted between two charges. In theory, the location of electric potential is determined by using voltmeter which will then help map the equipotential lines and electric field lines. Methods
