# Electric Field Lines and Equipotentials

## The Problem

Plot the electric field lines and equipotentials for two point charges q1 and q2 when (a) q1 = q2 = +q and (b) q1 = +2q and q2 = –q.

## Physics of the Problem

### Electric Field Lines

At position r, the electric field of a charge distribution consisting of a discrete distribution of N point charges q1,q2,..., qN at positions r1,r2,..., rN, respectively, and a continuous distribution of volume charge density ρ(r’) in the volume V and surface charge density σ(r’) on the surface S that bounds V is

Equation 5.1.1. where ε0 is the permittivity of free space. The electric field ...
