How much energy is given to each coulomb of charge passing through a 6 V battery?

Given that

Charge,q = 1 C

Potential difference V = 6 v

To find out

We need to find the energy given to each coulomb of charge passing through a 6 V battery

Solution

Principle of conservation of energy

  • From the principle of conservation of energy, we know that the work done by the system is equal to the energy supplied to that system.
  • The energy given to each coulomb of charge is equal to the amount of work required to move it.

Formula

Potential difference (V)= Work done (W) / Charge (q)

On rearranging the above formula we get

Work done (W) = Potential difference X Charge

Put the value of V and q in the above equation, we get

Work done (w) = 6 X 1

Work done = 6 Joules

Therefore, the energy is given to each coulomb of charge passing through a 6 v battery is 6 J.
