An electric field is an area which if entered by a charged object, it will experience the electric force which is produced by a quantity of charge.
The paths of electric field of a positive charge can be represented by the electric force
lines or electric field lines.
The characteristics of the electric field line are:
(i) The lines begin from the positive charge and end at the negative charge.
(ii) The lines do not overlap.
(iii) The lines repel each other.
(iv) The lines intensity represents the electric field intensity.
