Name the quantity which can be denoted by joule/coulomb.


Potential difference is the quantity which is denoted by joule/coulomb.

Potential difference

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

[latex]dv = \frac{dw}{dq}[/latex]

The potential difference between points A and B, VB-VA, is defined as the shift in the potential energy of a charge q, divided by the charge, shifted from A to B.

Unit of potential difference

The unit of potential difference is volt.

[latex]1\, volt = \frac{1\,joule}{coulomb}[/latex]
