Electrostatic Potential Energy

Postby Rachel Yu 1G » Mon Nov 04, 2019 7:40 pm

What does the equation for electrostatic potential energy we went over in lecture represent?

The equation for electrostatic potential energy is Ue= kq1q2/r
Basically it's just saying that a charge will exert force on any other charge and thus potential energy will emerges because of that. K is a Coulomb's constant and r is the distance between charge 1 (q1) and charge 2 (q2)
