WHAT DOES POTENTIAL WELL MEAN IN ENGLISH?

Potential well

A potential well is the region surrounding a local minimum of potential energy. Energy captured in a potential well is unable to convert to another type of energy because it is captured in the local minimum of a potential well. Therefore, a body may not proceed to the global minimum of potential energy, as it would naturally tend to due to entropy.

Definition of potential well in the English dictionary

The definition of potential well in the dictionary is a localized region in a field of force in which the potential has a deep minimum.
