Option c) Newton/Coulomb : Force per unit charge which is electric field. Hence, option c) is not a unit of electrostatic potential. Option d) Newton-metre/Coulomb: Newton-metre is Joule. Hence Joule / Coulomb is a unit of electrostatic potential.

## What is the SI 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 SI unit of electric potential difference?

The SI unit of potential or potential difference is Volt. One Volt may be defined as the one joule of work-done to move a charge of one coulomb.

## Which of the following is not a unit of electric capacitance?

Coulomb is the SI unit of charge and not capacitance. Farad is the SI unit of capacitance.

## What is electric potential and what is the unit of electric potential?

In short, electric potential is the electric potential energy per unit charge. This value can be calculated in either a static (time-invariant) or a dynamic (varying with time) electric field at a specific time in units of joules per coulomb (J⋅C^{−}^{1}), or volts (V).

## Which of the following is not an example of electric potential energy?

A vibrating pendulum when it is just passing through its mean position is not the example of potential energy.

## What are the units of potential difference?

potential difference (V) is measured in volts (V) energy (E) is measured in joules (J)

## What is SI unit of potential difference and the symbol for potential difference?

The volt (symbol: V) is the derived unit for electric potential, electric potential difference (voltage), and electromotive force.

## What are the SI units of capacitance?

The SI derived unit of electric capacitance is the farad, which is defined as a volt second per square meter.

## What is the unit of electric capacitance?

Capacitance is expressed as the ratio of the electric charge on each conductor to the potential difference (i.e., voltage) between them. The capacitance value of a capacitor is measured in farads (F), units named for English physicist Michael Faraday (1791–1867). A farad is a large quantity of capacitance.

## Which of the following is a unit of capacitance?

The SI unit of capacitance is the farad (symbol: F), named after the English physicist Michael Faraday. A 1 farad capacitor, when charged with 1 coulomb of electrical charge, has a potential difference of 1 volt between its plates. The reciprocal of capacitance is called elastance.
