Electric Potential Unit Converter
Electric potential is a fundamental concept in physics that describes the amount of electric potential energy per unit of charge. It is typically measured in volts (V) and can be thought of as the electric potential energy per unit charge at a given point in an electric field.
Here are some examples of electric potential in real-life situations:
Batteries: Batteries produce a difference in electric potential between their positive and negative terminals, which causes an electric current to flow through the circuit they are connected to.
Electrical power grids: Electric potential is used in the distribution of electrical power through power grids. The electric potential is increased at power plants and then decreased for transmission to homes and businesses.
Lightning: The buildup of electric potential in a thunderstorm can result in a lightning strike. Lightning is essentially a discharge of electric potential that can cause damage to buildings and other structures.
