Electric Field

#) Electric Field: The electric field is a component of the Electromagnetic field. It is a vector field, and it is generated by electric charges or time-varying magnetic fields as described by Maxwell’s equations.

*) Electric field is defined as the electric force per unit charge.

*) The direction of the field is taken to be the direction of the force it would exert on a positive test charge.

*) The electric field is radially outward from a positive charge and radially in toward a negative point charge.
