Define potential difference between two points

Potential difference between any two points is defined as the amount of work done in moving a unit charge from one point to another

\(dv=frac{dw}{dq}\)

Point 1:

If a positive charge is moved from a point at a higher potential to point at a lower potential energy is liberated.

Point 2:

In actual practice electric charge moves from lower potential to higher potential here there is a loss of energy by electrons moving from lower potential to higher potential the loss of energy appears as Heat.
