## Electrostatic potential energy of point charge or system of charges Formula

Electrostatic Potential Energy = [Coulomb]*Charge 1*Charge 2/(Separation between Charges)
Ue = [Coulomb]*q1*q2/(r)

## Defining Potential Energy.

The electrostatic potential energy of one point charge (q) at position (r) in the presence of an electric field (E) is defined as the negative of the work (W) done by the electrostatic force to bring it from the reference position (r) reference to that position (r). It can also be defined as the product of the charge (q) and the electric potential (V).

## Difference between Electrostatic and Electric Potential Energy.

The term "electric potential energy" is used to describe the potential energy in systems with time-variant electric fields, while the term "electrostatic potential energy" is used to describe the potential energy in systems with time-invariant electric fields.
