# Battery potential understanding

#### MathsLearner123

I want to understand a battery creating potential in similar terms of gravitational field analogy. Is it possible? I am doing this to simplify concept of battery potential. I am not sure whether I am clear in my question.

The definition of the potential says "amount of work done to move a unit charge from one place to another" , in mathematical terms we can write it as $$\displaystyle \int_{a}^{b} \mathbf{E} \cdot d\mathbf{dl}$$ . Since, we have understood how the electric field was created, so from there it follows that a potential has been created.
