Electric Potential and Potential Difference
Electric potential is the work done per unit charge in bringing the charge from infinity to that point against electrostatic force.
In a conductor, electrons flow only when there is a difference in electric pressure at its ends. This is also called potential difference. In a circuit, this potential difference is created by a battery.
V = W/QOrPotential difference =Work done/Charge
