There is no math in this one! I just wanted to know if I had the idea correct. 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data If I have two positively charged particles at a distance between them that a field is produced between and around them, will test particles that repel away be solely a function of their distance from the charged particles? In other words, is the field strength only dependent on distance from particle? Where the two fields meet and field lines become uniform, the flux is greatest there. Will the intensity of the field here still be dependent on distance from the charged particles? 2. Relevant equations I see a relation between E = kQ/r2 and Φ=EA . 3. The attempt at a solution Since Φ is dependent on E, which in turn is dependent on size of charge divided by distance squared, I believe that field strength is dependent on distance. Have I got this correct?
