Symbol: U
Definition: scalar field U the negative of the gradient of which is a force field F, thus F = −grad U

NOTE 1 The potential is not unique since any constant scalar field can be added to a given potential without changing its gradient. See also IEC 60050-102:2007, 102-05-24.

NOTE 2 The coherent SI unit of potential is newton metre, N⋅m.
