Solution

Potential difference:

  1. 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.
  2. Mathematically, V=Wq=JCJoule/coulomb., Where W= Work done, q= charge
  3. This gives Joule per Coulomb as the SI unit of electric potential.
  4. Electric potential is a scalar quantity.

Thus, Potential difference is the quantity that can be denoted by Joule per Coulomb.
