08-27 Electric Potential Energy Solution

  • 0:00 - 0:02
    And you think of this as compressing a spring.
  • 0:02 - 0:06
    When I compress the spring more and more and more, I'm storing more and more energy in it,
  • 0:06 - 0:08
    likewise, with these two charges.
  • 0:08 - 0:12
    When r is really small or those charges really want to fly apart,
  • 0:12 - 0:16
    they want to fly off into the distance and acquire kinetic energy.
  • 0:16 - 0:19
    That is when the electric potential energy is highest.
  • 0:19 -
    Now, we should probably quantify this mathematically.
