Activity: Electric potential

IB Physics: Activity: Electric potential

Why do charges accelerate? Because of variations in electric potential. In this activity you will define potential, observe the connection between work done and area under a force vs displacement graph, understand the relationship between lines of equipotential and field and understand the relationship between potential and potential energy. Using what you know, a new unit of energy will be established: the electronvolt.
