Dear Student,

__ Electric potential__:

Electric potential is defined as the amount of work done to bring unit positive charge slowly(acceleration =0) from infinity to at a certain point in the given electric field .

Electric potential due to a point charge Q at a distance r is given by

$V=\frac{Q}{4{\mathrm{\pi \epsilon}}_{\mathrm{o}}\mathrm{r}}$

Unit is Nm/C Electric potential is used mostly in the study of electrostatics.

__ Electric potential energy __is defined as the capacity for doing work which arises from position or configuration of the charges on the system. It is the amount of work done in bringing a (q) charge from infinity to a point near another (Q) charge or in a system of charges.

$U=\frac{Qq}{4{\mathrm{\pi \epsilon}}_{0}\mathrm{r}}$

Regards.
