How do you find the electric field of a point charge?
E = kQ/r
r is distance from point in question
Is the electric field a vector?
What direction do Electric field lines travel?
At what angle do electric field lines leave the charge?
90 degrees (Normals)
What direction does the electric field point in?
The direction of attraction, Leave Positive.
Do you need the sign for calculating electric field?
No, just find magnitude, then use Opposites Attract and Leave Positive
What is the electric field in terms of Force?
E = F/Q
E = Force / Charge
