Unformatted text preview: gion Electric Field Lines, General •  The density of lines through surface A is greater than through surface B •  The magnitude of the electric field is greater on surface A than B •  The lines at different locations point in different directions –  This indicates the field is non-uniform Electric Field Lines, Positive Point Charge •  The field lines radiate outward in all directions –  In three dimensions, the distribution is spherical •  The lines are directed away from the source charge –  A positive test charge would be repelled away from the positive source charge Electric Field Lines, Negative Point Charge •  The field lines radiate inward in all directions •  The lines are directed toward the source charge –  A positive test charge would be attracted toward the negative source charge Electric Field Lines – Dipole •  The charges are equal and opposite •  The number of field lines leaving the positive charge equals the number of lines terminating on the negative charge Electric Field Lines – Like Charges •  The charges are equal and posit...
