What are the rules for drawing electric field patterns?

Mar 17, 2018

Electric Field basically tells the region around a charge where its effect can be felt.

Explanation:

1) Electric field lines are always drawn from High potential to
low potential.

2) Two electric field lines can never intersect each other.

3) The net electric field inside a Conductor is Zero.

4) Electric field line from a positive charge is drawn radially outwards and from a negative charge radially inwards.

5) The density of electric field lines tells the strength of the electric field at that region.

6) Electric field lines terminate Perpendicularly to the surface of a conductor.
