At what position does the electric field point to the left?
Capacitors and Electric Fields
The electric field points from the positive to the negative plate- left to right.
What is the direction of the electric field at a point directly to the left of a positive charge?
The electric field points to the left because the force on a negative charge is opposite to the direction of the field. The electric field points to the right because the force on a negative charge is in the same direction as the field.
In which direction does the electric field point at a position directly south of a positive charge?
The direction of electric field is radially outward for a positive charge and radially inward for a negative charge. Thus, for the electric field points toward SOUTH at a position directly south of a positive charge.
