**Pattern:**

**Electric potential**

**Description:**

**Potential is nothing but energy possessed by a unit positive charge in field of other charge. It can be calculated by a formula $V=4πε_{0}1 rq $. But in case of linear charge distribution, we can apply this formula for small element of charge distribution then we get integrate for entire charge distribution. Because electric field, charges posses potential , this potential is $dU=−E⋅dx$.**

Any uniformly charged object have potential, when you connect two charged object with conduction wire then charged will conduct from one to other until potential of both become same.

**Question may asked:**Potential at a point due to point charge or system of point charges, Potential at a point due to uniformly distributed charge, Question-based on the relation between field and potential, Direction of charge flow.
