Solution

## Potential difference:The potential difference between any two points may be defined as the amount of work done in moving a unit charge from one point to another.Mathematically, $V=\frac{W}{q}=\frac{J}{C}$$⇒$Joule/coulomb., Where $W$= Work done, $q$= chargeThis gives Joule per Coulomb as the SI unit of electric potential. Electric potential is a scalar quantity.Thus, Potential difference is the quantity that can be denoted by Joule per Coulomb.
