An electric potential (also called the electric field potentialpotential drop or the electrostatic potential) is the amount of work needed to move a unit of charge from a reference point to a specific point inside the field without producing an acceleration.
In SI base units: V = kg⋅m2⋅A−1⋅s−3
SI unit: volt
Common symbols: V, φ
Other units: statvolt

When we say Electric potential, it is the amount of work needed to move a unit charge from a reference point to a specific point against an electric field. Naturally, the reference point is Earth, although any point beyond the influence of the electric field charge can be used. Electric potential. So the term is the electric force F exerted by the field on the positive charge is F = qE; to move the charge from plate A to plate B, an equal and opposite force (F′ = −qE) must then be applied. The work W done in moving the positive charge through a distance d is W = F′d = −qEd.
