Abstract

Up until now we have dealt with Coulomb’s force and electric eld, both of which are di cult to work with because they are vector quantities. Now, it is time to adapt the concepts of work and energy that we developed in mechanics into their electrical equivalents. Indeed, like the gravitational force, the electric force is also conservative, hence we can de ne a potential energy for electric forces as well.
