Physics Notes 10-10-07 -electricity vectors go out from the positive and in to the negative. This is because the test charge is positive. Since the electric field is a vector, the electric field at any point is the vector sum of the field vectors at that point caused by each charge separately. -the number of lines starting on a positive charge is proportional to the magnitude of the charge

Unformatted text preview: -field lines never cross. The electric field vector has a unique direction at any point.-the direction of the electric field is tangent to the field line-where field lines are closer together, the field is stronger in magnitude-field lines are perpendicular to conductor surface...

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
