Kindly clear me these basics Q 1) why to the electric field lines between two negative charges is not possible.!!!! Q 2) why electric field can't be negative??? Q 3) what's the difference among test charge ,point charge and unit charge???

    3) A test charge is a positive charge of very small magnitude which gives the direction and strength of electric field in space without influencing the electric field, whereas a po...

    2) Your second question should be a general one! what I mean by that? I mean this question is valid for all vector (not just electric field vector). Vectors are never positive or n...

    answer 2.... An electric field is neither positive or negative. It is defined as being the force acting per unit positive charge . (This means it is a vector like force is). The d...

    Test charge and point charge are synonymous in the sense that both are unit positive charges. ... a point charge is the one with dimensions so much smaller than the other dimension...
