19.1: Potential Energy An electric potential energy exists that is  analogous to the gravitational potential  energy. An object falls because of the gravitational  force,            The work done from  h A  to  h B  is: W AB  mgh A  –  mgh B  =  GPE A  –  GPE B g m F =

19.1: Potential Energy A positive test charge between oppositely  charged plates “falls” too. An electric force of             moves the charge  downward. The work done from point  A  to  B  is: W AB  EPE A  –  EPE B E q F 0 =

19.2: The Electric Potential  Difference Dividing the difference between the electrical  potential energies by  q 0  gives: The  electric potential  or, simply, the  potential  is: 0 0 0 q EPE q EPE q W B A AB - = 0 q EPE V = C J V 1 1 1 =

Difference The potential difference between points can  be related to the work done by the electric  force: The potential difference is often referred to as  a ”voltage”. 0 0 0 q
