Which of these are correct for an electric field? A) It's a vector quantity, and can be cancelled.B) Three of three are correct.C) It stores electric energy.D) Two of three are correct.E) It's the altered space surrounding electric charge.

  • physics -

    A. "cancelled"? Surely your instructor did not use that word. If an electric field is opposed, then the two electric fields may add to zero. So lesser minds may call that canceling.

    b. ?
    c. Electric fields indeed stores electric energy, as do magnetic fields.

    d. ?

    e. I have no idea what altered space is, I am not into new age metaphysics. Electric fields are in fact surrounding electric charge.
