# Electricity: Electric Field, Potential, and Capacitance

There are nine problem sets on the topic of Electric Field, Potential, and Capacitance. Most problems are multi-part problems requiring an extensive analysis. The problems target your ability to use the concepts of electric field, electric potential, electric potential energy, and electric capacitance to solve problems related to the interaction of charges with electrical fields.
