What is meant by saying that the potential difference between two points is 1 V?

 

Answer

We know that

Potential Difference = Work done/ Charge

1 Volt = 1 Joule / 1 Coulomb

 

So, we can say that

Potential difference between two points is said to be 1 volt when 1 Joule of work is done to move a charge of 1 Coulomb from one point to another.
