Graphical Field Plotting

ABSTRACT For a clear understanding of the concept of electric field, some method for describing it, both qualitatively and quantitatively, is needed. Graphical field plotting is one such method that is dynamic in nature and illustrates the vector nature of the electric field. Graphical field maps are commonly drawn for practical configurations, which may be considered as two-dimensional or which are axi-symmetric in nature. Typically, in graphical field plotting, electric fieldlines are drawn to provide information about the field. The strength of the field is indicated by the density of the field lines. A high density of electric fieldlines indicates a strong field and vice versa. Complementary information can ...
