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

Answer:

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.

$dv = \frac{dw}{dq}$

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.

$1\, volt = \frac{1\,joule}{coulomb}$
