The invention of electric lines of force was done by famous scientist Michael Faraday. These do not provide the full info about electric field, but provide us with quantitative partial information.

Def: Electric lines of force can be defined as a way or path, it may be straight or curved, so that the tangent at any point to it gives the direction of the electric field intensity at that point.
