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
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.
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.
