What Are Electric Fields?
A gravitational field surrounds the Earth, which gives us a power that can pull us down. Similarly, the electric field is charged around the force of particles and the force of charged particles in the area. Have you ever heard the expression ‘attracting opponents’? It certainly applies to the electric field.
|The direction of the electric field is always directed away from a positive source charges to negative sources charges|
The image above shows the surrounding electric field both positive and negative sources. The arrow you saw indicates that a positive test charge will take place in the area. Positive objects make electric fields that suppress other positive things; thus, arrows are directed away from positive sources. Negative sources create electric fields that attract positive objects; therefore, the arrows you watch are directed towards the negative source. It is important to remember that the direction of the electric field always indicates that a positive particle will be transferred to that area.
