    \[\Delta V=V_b-V_a=\frac{\Delta U}{q_0}=-\int_a^b\vec E \cdot d\vec l\]

    we'll I'm being told that "changes in U and V have the same magnitude for a given charge; they only depend on E.dl (the dot product of each differential path vector with the electric field)" and I don't understand how U and V can have the same magnitude

    are we ignoring the test charge (q)?

    maybe the test charge is one unit
