ELECTRIC FIELDS AND EQUIPOTENTIAL SURFACES

1.what condition must exist to have a region of nearly uniform electric fields

2.where are regions of strongest and weakest electric fields located


Nearly always, there are flat equipotential surfaces. There are exceptions to this.

The regions of strongest E is where the change in potential is greatest, and weakest where the change of potential is nearly zero.
