1. Consider a point charge +Q. What is bigger: its electric field 2 m from this charge, or its potential 2 m from the charge?
a. Electric field
b. Potential
c. They are equal.
d. These two can’t be compared.

the Electric field due to a point charge at distance r is given by and the potential due to a point charge at distance r is

given by ... And In terms of E, it may be written as V= Er.

these two Electric field (E) and potential difference (V) are two different quanties.. So these can't be compared.

Option (d)

We only compare the two similar quanties that which one larger or smaller.. ( in terms of magnitude it can be calculated by using the above formulae)
