Potential difference

About D.E.V.I.C.E.

The name given to a region in an electric circuit in which charged particles would tend to move from one place to another. When using a gravitational analogy, potential difference is a difference in height. The greater the physical height in the analogy, the greater the potential difference in the electric circuit.
