## anonymous 5 years ago what is potential difference

1. anonymous

we can not measure absolute potential at a point. so,we go for the difference by keeping a reference point standard. normally ground potential is used as difference.

2. anonymous

No way... I think you messed up buddy. We can measure potential of a point if the intensity of the force field is known. $\int\limits_{a}^{\infty} F.dx= the potential at that point, a$

potential at that point , a < if you want a difference then substract the lower from the higher one
