Lesson: Electric Potential DifferencePhysics
In this lesson, we will learn how to calculate the change in the electric potential energy per unit charge given a change in position in an electric field.
Sample Question Videos
Two parallel plates, each with sides of length 10 cm are given equal and opposite charges of magnitude C. The plates are 1.5 mm apart. What is the potential difference between the plates?
The electric field strength between two parallel conducting plates separated by 4.00 cm is .
What is the potential difference between the plates?
The plate with the lowest potential is taken as zero potential. What is the electrical potential 1.00 cm from the zero potential plate and 3.00 cm from the other plate?
Two parallel conducting plates are separated by 10.0 cm, and one of them is taken to be at 0 volt.
What is the electric field strength between them, if the potential 8.00 cm from the 0 volt plate (and 2.00 cm from the other) is 450 V?
What is the voltage between the plates?
