differentiate between Emf and Potential difference Pd.

  • physics -

    THere is not much difference in actual usage. Historically, emf was used on sources to indicate the rate at which energy could be extracted, and potential difference was used to indicate the amount of potential energy that could be released between two points. As used now, there is insignificant difference.
