Equipotential surfaces cannot____________

Answer:

Equipotential surfaces cannot intersect.

  • If equipotential surfaces intersect at that point then electric field lines will also intersect which is not possible.
  • The electric field lines are perpendicular to the equipotential surface.
  • Because the electric force can’t have two directions at the same time, the field lines can’t cross each other. As a result, two equipotential surfaces do not have to be parallel.
