## Electric Potential Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the electric potential of a point.

EP = q * E * d

- Where EP is the electric potential energy (Joules)
- q is the point charge (Coulombs)
- E is the electric field strength (N/C)
- d is the distance (m)

## Electric Potential Definition

Electric potential energy is a specific type of potential energy that arises by the potential of a point charge to be moved by an electric field.
