Electric Field Between Two Charged Metal Plates

Electric Field Between Two Charged Metal Plates

A graphic showing the parallel electric field lines of a constant electric field between two charged metal plates. The strength of the electric field is represented by the density of the field lines.

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.

An electric field is a vector field that associates to each point in space the Coulomb force that would be experienced per unit of electric charge, by an infinitesimal test charge at that point.Electric fields converge and diverge at electric charges and can be induced by time-varying magnetic fields. The electric field combines with the magnetic field to form the electromagnetic field.
