GUIDE QUESTIONS 1. Is it possible for equipotential lines to intersect each other? Justify your answer. It is not possible for the equipotential lines to intersect each other, since  they all follow the law of conservation of charge in which they must trade their  charge to attain a new one. 2. Refer  to   your  electric  field  pattern  and  affirm  what  relationship  is  observed  between the regions of close spacing of the lines of force and the regions of  close spacing of equipotential lines. From the electric field pattern we can assume a strong force within the  regions of closer spacing, be it equipotential lines or lines of force. 3. What relation can be derived between the distances of the equipotential line to  the center of the point source?

The distances of the equipotential lines are proportional to its distance to  the point source. The closer the equipotential lines are to the source, the closer  they are to each other. 4. Draw and label the field between two positively charged bodies. REMARKS AND CONCLUSION Electric charge is a fundamental conserved property of some subatomic particles,  which determines their electromagnetic interaction. Electrically charged matter is  influenced by, and produces, electromagnetic fields. The interaction between a moving  charge and the electromagnetic field is the source of the electromagnetic force, which is  one of the four fundamental forces. Electric charge is a characteristic of some subatomic particles, and is quantized  when expressed as a multiple of the so-called elementary charge e. Electrons by  convention have a charge of −1, while protons have the opposite charge of +1.  In general, same-sign charged particles repel one another, while different-sign
