## Question:

What is meant by electric field intensity?

## Electric Current:

An electrical quantity that represents the movement of the electric charge with time is known as electric current. Its measurable unit is Ampere or electric coulomb per second. It moves in the opposite direction of the flow of electron.

Electric Field Intensity:

An electrical quantity that represents the intensity of force endured by the electric charge per unit coulomb charge at the position is identified as electric field intensity. Its measurable unit is Newton per coulomb. The mathematical formula of electric field intensity is the electrostatic force divided by electric charge.
