IEVref: 113-03-48 ID: Language: en Status: Standard Term: potential energy Synonym1: Synonym2: Synonym3: Symbol: VEp Definition: energy due to the position in a force field, equal to the opposite of the line integral along a curve C of a conservative force F, thus $V=-{\int }_{\text{C}}F\cdot dr$, where dr is vector line elementNOTE 1 A force is conservative when the force field F(r) is static and irrotational, i.e. rot F = 0, in a simply connected domain. NOTE 2 Force F is the gradient of potential energy V, thus F = grad V. See also “potential” (113-03-19).
