Hi, I'm reading the textbook and there is my image.

It says "The field vector E bar is tangent to the electric field line at each point".
I might want to ask what "tangent" means in this sentence? Sorry to ask that stupid question.

It means any electricfield-line is parallel with electricfield vector $\vec E$ at any point.
