Uniform electric field is represented by parallel and equally spaced filed lines.
Uniform electric field
The region around the electric charge in which the stress or electric force act is called an electric field or electrostatic field. The symbol E represents the electric field. The SI unit of the electric field is newton per coulomb which is equal to volts per meter. The imaginary lines of force represent the electric field. For the positive charge, the line of force comes out of the charge, and for the negative charge, the line of force will move towards the charge.
- When the electric field is constant at every point, the field is called the uniform electric field. The constant field is obtained by placing the two-conductor parallel to each other, and the potential difference between them remains the same at every point.
