Modified from College Physics , 8 th Ed., Serway and Vuille. For the quizzes and tests, you should know all the concepts and equations in this summary. 16.1: Potential Difference and Electric Potential The change in the electric potential energy of a system consisting of an object of charge q moving through a displacement Δ x in a constant electric field pointing in the +x direction is given by [16.1] x qE W PE x AB Δ = = Δ where E x is the component of the electric field in the x -direction and . The difference in electric potential between two points A and B is i f x x x = Δ q PE V V V A B Δ = = Δ [16.2] where is the change in electrical potential energy as a charge q moves between A and B . The units of potential difference are volts . PE Δ The electric potential difference between two points A and B in a uniform electric field pointing in the +x direction is x E V Δ = Δ [16.3] where is the displacement between A and B . i
