Potential Difference

Pawan Asked

“What is meant by potential difference?”

Answer:

“Potential Difference between two points is the difference in Potential between the two points and is equal to the work done per unit charge ion carrying a positive test charge from one point to another against the electric field and without any acceleration”

Difference between emf and pd

ananthesh asked:

“can you please explain about emf and PD of a cell?”

Answer:

EMF stands for electromotive force.

EMF of a cell is equal to the potential difference between the two terminals of a cell when no current is drawn from it.

Pd (potential difference) between any two points on a circuit is defined as the work done per unit charge in carrying a positive test charge from one point to the other. With reference to a cell, the potential difference between the terminals of a cell when a current is drawn from it is called terminal voltage.
