This video discusses many things related to electricity, but from 2:53 to 4:30, it gives an excellent description of electric potential.
This video discusses the electric potential from a single charge. There is an example of using the equation at 4:30.
This video shows you how to calculate the potential difference between two points.
This video shows you how to calculate an electron’s kinetic energy after moving through a potential difference.
This video shows you how to calculate a charge’s speed as it travels through a potential difference.
This video gives some statistics about lighting and an animated explanation of how it works.
This video shows a super slow-motion video of a lightning strike, allowing you to see the stepped leader before the return stroke.
This animation shows the flow of charges in a Leyden jar.
This video is an entertaining discussion of how the Leyden jar was invented.
This video shows you how to calculate the capacitance of a parallel-plate capacitor.
This video discusses conventional current compared to actual electron flow.
