The answer is V =delta U over q

Explanation:

Electric potential is defined as the magnitude of the electric field through the potential energy that a charge would have if placed at that point. Mathematically, the potential is defined with the following expression: where:

V is the electric potential. Its unit is Julius by Coulomb (J/C).

Ep is the electric potential energy that has a charge

q is the charge

In the question Ep = ΔU

Explanation:

The electrostatic potential is defined in terms of work done in taking a unit positive charge from infinity to the point in question.

V=kq/d

Where d= distance from infinity to the point in question

k= constant of proportionality

q= attracting charge

The electric potential is measured in volts
