We have two types of electric fields. One is the high voltage, which is what we are used to from the power lines and the other is the low voltage, which is what people have used to create electricity. The differences are all around and they can be quite useful. Most importantly, we all like to know what we are doing and, when the time comes to use electricity, we tend to know how to use it.
The electric field is the line of force that gives our electric charges their strength. For example, if a metal rod is placed close to a battery and it comes into contact with it, electrons are released from the rod and are attracted to the battery. The closer you are to a battery, the stronger the electric field. If you’re closer to the battery, the electric field is weaker. The electric field acts on the electrons and they are forced to travel farther.
By the same token, the voltage of an electric charge depends on where the charge is located. The closer it is to a source of energy, the more powerful the voltage becomes.
In the above diagram, the electric field is the arrow and the voltage is the line. The closer we are to an object, the stronger the electric field. The closer we are to the source of energy, the stronger the electric field becomes. The electric field acts on the electrons and they are forced to travel farther.
So in the above diagram, the electric field is the arrow and the voltage is the line. The closer we are to an object, the stronger the electric field becomes. The closer we are to the source of energy, the stronger the electric field becomes.
You know when you hit a wall and you can feel the electricity coursing through your body? That’s electric field. When we connect to the internet, electricity is the way we communicate with each other. When we’re connected to electricity, it’s like we’re in a room and someone is controlling all the lights.
For electric fields to be the way we communicate with each other, they have to be very close.
In the case of a strong electric field, the strength is proportional to the distance, so a very strong electric field could be a distance of just a few inches, but a strong electric field may have a strength of hundreds of thousands of volts because the source of the energy is very close. We can also have electric fields that are even stronger near the source, because of the way the field lines are curved, which allows a lot more energy to be transmitted.
In a strong electric field, the electric field lines are curved, and so the energy can be transmitted, but the source of the energy is very close which means the energy is pretty much lost in the field lines. In this case, it’s kind of like the difference between a strong magnetic and a weak magnetic field.
It’s not like we can use this knowledge to help us understand how electricity works. I mean, there are definitely electrical circuits, but we can only see them as electric fields. I guess we can imagine how an electric field would look like though. It would look like a bunch of little tiny straight lines, all the way up to the point where they cross. The lines would be super-distorted from the source, and so they would be able to move at incredible speeds.
