08-27 Electric Potential Energy Solution
0:00 - 0:02And you think of this as compressing a spring.
0:02 - 0:06When I compress the spring more and more and more, I'm storing more and more energy in it,
0:06 - 0:08likewise, with these two charges.
0:08 - 0:12When r is really small or those charges really want to fly apart,
0:12 - 0:16they want to fly off into the distance and acquire kinetic energy.
0:16 - 0:19That is when the electric potential energy is highest.
0:19 -Now, we should probably quantify this mathematically.
