electric potential is work done by electrostatic force in bringing a unit +ve charge from infinity to a particular point.

electric potential energy is work done in bringing a charge from infinity to that point.

 

plzzzzzzz approve my answer if u like it.

In classical electromagnetism, the electric potential (denoted by φ, φE or V; also called the electrostatic potential) at a point in space is the electric potential energy divided by charge associated with a static (time-invariant) electric field. Typically measured in volts, the electric potential is a scalar quantity equivalent to a joule per coulomb.

plzzzzz approve........

Electric potential is as such has no physical significance...... it just measures the amount of work done while you travel along any path between two points......Smile
