what is the uniform electric field

Dear aman,

In physics, the space surrounding an electric charge or in the presence of a time-varying magnetic field has a property called an electric field. This electric field exerts a force on other electrically charged objects. The concept of an electric field was introduced by Michael Faraday. The electric field is a vector field with SI units of newtons per coulomb (N C −1) or, equivalently, volts per metre (V m −1). The SI base units of the electric field are kg·m·s −3 ·A −1. The strength of the field at a given point is defined as the force that would be exerted on a positive test charge of +1 coulomb placed at that point; the direction of the field is given by the direction of that force. Electric fields contain electrical energy with energy density proportional to the square of the field intensity. The electric field is to charge as gravitational acceleration is to mass and force density is to volume.

The region where charge is uniform in which its electrical effects can be observed is called uniform electric field.

hi aman,

An electric field is said to be uniform if intensity is same at all points in it both in magnitude and direction.
