### Electric Potential

Electric field is a vector quantity associated with a distribution of charges. In many cases we can get all the information we need about a charge distribution without vectors by using the electric potential. Learn how electric potential can simplify many electromagnetism problems and the relation between charge, electric potential, and energy.
