To use our electrical potential calculator, select the unit to change over from in the info units list. Select the unit to change over to in the yield units list. Enter the incentive to change over from into the info box on the left. The transformation result will quickly show up in the yield box.


An electric potential (likewise called the electric field potential, potential drop or the electrostatic potential) is the measure of work expected to move a unit of charge from a reference point to a particular point inside the field without creating a speeding up. Normally, the reference point is the Earth or a point at boundlessness, albeit any point can be utilized.

In old style electrostatics, the electrostatic field is a vector amount which is communicated as the angle of the electrostatic potential, which is a scalar amount meant by V or once in a while φ,[1] equivalent to the electric potential vitality of any charged molecule at any area (estimated in joules) separated by the charge of that molecule (estimated in coulombs). By separating out the charge on the molecule a remainder is acquired that is a property of the electric field itself. To put it plainly, electric potential is the electric potential vitality per unit charge.

This worth can be determined in either a static (time-invariant) or a dynamic (differing with time) electric field at a particular time in units of joules per coulomb (J C−1), or volts (V). The electric potential at boundlessness is thought to be zero.

In electrodynamics, when time-changing fields are available, the electric field can't be communicated distinctly as far as a scalar potential. Rather, the electric field can be communicated regarding both the scalar electric potential and the attractive vector potential.[2] The electric potential and the attractive vector potential together structure a four vector, with the goal that the two sorts of potential are blended under Lorentz changes.

For all intents and purposes, electric potential is constantly a nonstop capacity in space; Otherwise, its spatial subsidiary will yield a field with limitless extent, which is basically incomprehensible. Indeed, even a romanticized point charge has potential, which is nonstop wherever with the exception of the starting point. The electric field over a romanticized surface charge isn't persistent, however it's not boundless anytime. Accordingly, the electric potential is ceaseless over a romanticized surface charge. An admired direct charge has  potential, which is ceaseless wherever with the exception of on the straight charge.
