Hi. Can someone please explain to me what exactly the electric potential is and how it differs from electric potential energy -- not with equations, but in prose. (Or at least, with both.) I can read the equation, but I don't really understand what electric potential IS. What is its significance?
Thank you!

Point charges q1=- 5.00 nC and q2=+ 5.00 nC are separated by distance 3.80 mm, forming an electric dipole.
A) Find the magnitude of the electric dipole moment in Cm.
B) The charges are in a uniform electric field whose direction makes an angle 36.5 degrees with the line connecting the charges. What is the magnitude of this

Please help with the following problems.
1. In the figure, two charges q1=+3.0uC and q2=-2.0uC are separated by 6.0cm.
a. Find the electric forces exerted on each other (magnitude and direction)
b. Find the electric field from point P, which id 4.0cm to the right q2 (megnitude and direction).
c. Find the positions along t

The electric potential V in the space between two flat parallel plates is given by V = 1300x^2 , where V is in volts if x, the distance from one of the plates, is in meters.
Calculate the magnitude and direction of the electric field at x = 2.90 cm. What is the x-component of E?

A point charge of -6.8 µC is at the origin.

Problem 1
A charge is moved from one place to another in an electric field. In which of the following situations will the change in potential energy be NON-ZERO?
the charge is only moved perpendicular to all electric field lines that it crosses
the charge remains unmoved
the charge is moved along an equipotential surfa
