electric field strength



  • Within an electric field, a vector representing the force per unit charge acting upon a given point. Usually expressed in volts per meter, which is equivalent to newtons per coulomb. Its symbol is E. Also called electric field intensity, electric field (2), electric intensity, electric force, electric vector (2), or electric field vector.
