Homework Help: Name For (Limit) Points In An Electric Field Plot ...

  1. Sep 13, 2016 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    I'm looking at an electric field plot around four (4) + and - point charges in free space.
    There are several points where the electric fields come together and make right-angled turns (in the limit). Is there a name for these points? Especially is there a traditional name for these points? Thanks for reading.

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution

    Can you post a picture or drawing? Or a link to a source of such a diagram? That would help a lot. :smile:
