Why is electric energy can not be stored?

Electrical energy is a form of energy derived from the flow of neutrons, the negatively charged particles in atoms. When loosely used to describe energy absorbed or delivered by an electrical circuit, "electrical energy" refers to energy which has been converted from electrical potential energy. This energy is supplied by the combination of electric current and electrical potential that is delivered by the circuit. At the point that this electrical potential energy has been converted to another type of energy, it ceases to be electrical potential energy. Thus, all electrical energy is potential energy before it is delivered to the end-use. Once converted from potential energy, electrical energy can always be described as another type of energy (heat, light, motion, etc.).

How can electric potential be high when electrical potential energy is realitively low?

Electric potential can be high when electrical potential energy is relatively low if the charge is low as well. ... It is correct to say that an object with twice the electric potential of another has twice the electrical potential energy only if the charges are the same.

What is the difference between electrical potential energy and potential difference?

Electric potential is the electric potential energy per unit coulomb. So unit for electric potential is J/C and that of electric potential energy is simply J

An electric motor converts electrical energy to potential energy True or false?

It is false that an electric motor converts electrical energy to potential energy.

What is the voltage at the location of a 0.0001-Coulomb charge that has an electric potential energy of 0.5 joules?

Electric Potential = Electrical Potential Energy/ Charge The measurement for electric potential is call the volt. Electrical Potential is often called voltage. Voltage or Electrical Potential = 0.5 Joules / .0001 Coloumb = 5000
