Question

What is voltage?

A. It is the sum of the electrical potential energy in two places in an electric field.

B. It is the flow of an electric charge in only one direction.

C. It is the difference in electrical potential energy between two places in an electric field.

D. It is the flow of an electric charge that regularly reverses direction.

2 Answer

  • C. It is the difference in electrical potential energy between two places in an electric field.
  • Answer:

    C. It is the difference in electrical potential energy between two places in an electric field.

    Explanation:

    The voltage, also known as voltage or potential difference is a physical quantity that drives electrons along a conductor in a closed electrical circuit, causing the flow of an electric current.

    The potential difference is also defined as the work per unit of charge exerted by the electric field, on a charged particle, to move it from one place to another. It can be measured with a voltmeter.

    In the International System of Units, the potential difference is measured in Volts (V), as is the Potential.
