Electric Field

An electric field is a region where an electric charge experiences an electric foce.

The Direction of the field is defined as the direction of the force on a small positive charge

The strength of an electric field is indicated by how close the field lines are to each other

Hazards

Lightning

Thunderclouds are charged by friction between the water molecules in the thunderstorm, and the air molecules
