What is the electric potential at the center of the square of side 1m?

=509 volt.

Can there be electric potential at a point with zero electric intensity give an example?

Yes,There can exist electric potential at a point where the electric field is zero. Example:Inside the hallow spherical charged conductor, electric field is zero but potential is not zero.

Can electric potential at a point be zero while electric field is not zero?

Yes, electric potential can be zero at a point even when the electric field is not zero at that point. At the midpoint of the charges of the electric dipole, the electric field due to the charges is non zero, but the electric potential is zero. Was this answer helpful?

What do you mean by electric field?

Electric field, an electric property associated with each point in space when charge is present in any form. The magnitude and direction of the electric field are expressed by the value of E, called electric field strength or electric field intensity or simply the electric field.

Can electric field lines pass through an insulator?

The answer is “Yes”. Insulators are materials that hinder the free flow of electrons from one particle of the element to another. Whereas dielectric or insulators can be polarised by the electric field. Rather electric field passes ONLY through the insulator.

What is the relationship between equipotential lines and electric field?

Equipotential lines are always perpendicular to the electric field. In three dimensions, the lines form equipotential surfaces. Movement along an equipotential surface requires no work because such movement is always perpendicular to the electric field.

Can electric field pass through metal?

Conducting metals has many free electrons which move freely inside the conductor. When these conductors are kept in the electric field, the free electrons arrange in such a way that the electric field inside the conductor will be zero.

Where is the electric field largest?

Electric field strength is greatest where the lines are closest together and weakest where lines are furthest apart.
