Electric Field Lines (Faraday’s Lines of Force) (helpful visualizer of ) E Electric Field lines are drawn such that: 1. at any point is tangent to the line 2. Lines begin on + charge (or ∞), end on - (or ∞) 3. E is large where the lines are closely spaced (lines per area perpendicular E) 4. Field maps are not contours of constant E!! E
