Potential difference is the term used to describe the magnitude of the electrostatic force between two charged objects. If a charged body is placed between two objects with a potential difference, the charged body will try to move in one direction, depending upon the polarity of the object. If an e- is placed between a negatively charged body and a positively charged body, the potential difference pushes the electron toward the positively charged object. The electron, being negatively charged, will be repelled from the negatively charged object and attracted by the positively charged object, which in turn reduces the electrostatic force between 2 charged objects.
