    Question Physics : Voltage


    'If a body has a potential (or Voltge) it must posses an excess charge to give it that voltage.'

    'his charge can either be positive or negative , it doesn't matter which. However, the type of charge does decide thedirction of the electric field.'

    It the first sentence: It must posses an excess charge to give it that voltage. Does the Excess charge give the body the potential/ voltage or does the potential /voltage give the body the excess charge?

    Many thanks

    Re: Physics : Voltage

    The excess charge gives the body an electrical potential. That potential is called voltage.
