A charge of 2C moves between two plates maintained at a potential difference of 1V. What ia the energy acquired by the charge ?

We know that the formula of Potential difference, V= W/Q ————(i)

Given that the Energy needed to move a charge of Q = 2 Coulomb between two plates where the electric potential is V

Hence the formula in equation (i) can be rewritten as W=QV ————(ii)

As per the given conditionsQ = 2 C, Potential difference V = 1V.

Putting theknownvalues in equation (i),

Energy acquired by the charge,

W = QV

= 2 x 1

= 2 Joule

Energy acquired by the charge= 2 Joule
