# 10.2: Electric Fields

• Wendell Potter and David Webb et al.
• UC Davis

An electric field is a vector field that associates to each point in space the Coulomb force experienced by a unit electric charge. Electric fields converge and diverge at electric charges and they can be induced by time-varying magnetic fields. The electric field combines with the magnetic field to form the electromagnetic field.
