A basic Theory Question (Electric Field Mapping)

  1. Feb 6, 2012 #1
    If you reverse the polarities of the electrodes when you are "electric field mapping", wouldn't it show the same results on paper?
    Just the path it takes is reversed, but you would never know the difference wether it's going away or towards correct?

    I am diving into this "Electrical Field Mapping" and I am trying to dig into the theory more.

    Any help would be appreciative.
