Question

Electric potential energy has

  1. Direction only
  2. Magnitude only
  3. Direction and magnitude
  4. Cannot be determined

hintHint:

Magnitude only

The correct answer is: Magnitude only


    • The electric potential energy has magnitude only.
    • It is a scalar quantity.
    • So, the correct option is b.

    • It is defined as the amount of work done to bring a unit positive charge from infinity to a point in the electric field.
    • And work only has magnitude and no direction.
