# What is the unit used to measure potential difference?

Potential difference (V) – is measured in volts (V). Potential difference is the work done per unit charge. A potential difference of 1 V means that 1 joule of work is done per coulomb of charge.

Also question is, what is the SI unit of electric potential difference?

The standard metric unit on electric potential difference is the volt, abbreviated V and named in honor of Alessandro Volta. One Volt is equivalent to one Joule per Coulomb.

What is the unit of electric potential?

In the International System of Units (SI), electric potential is expressed in units of joules per coulomb (i.e., volts), and differences in potential energy are measured with a voltmeter.

What is the measure of electrical potential energy?

Electric potential energy, or electrostatic potential energy, is a potential energy (measured in joules) that results from conservative Coulomb forces and is associated with the configuration of a particular set of point charges within a defined system.
