difference between uniform and non-uniform electric fields.... plzz if possible draw diagrams too..!
A uniform electric field is one whose magnitude and direction is same at all points in space and it will exert same force of a charge regardless of the position of charge in space. It is represented by parallel and evenly spaced lines. For example we find uniform electric field between parallel plates of a capacitor. The equipotential surfaces(dotted lines) drawn normal to the field lines are also equidistance from each other.
A non uniform electric field is one which is not uniform, i.e. it has either different magnitudes or different directions or both different in a given region of space.
For example the field due to a point charge, shown by radial lines. It depends inversely as square of distance from the point charge . The equipotential surfaces are also at unequal distances (closely spaced near the charge and farther separating as we move away from the charge)
Field due to a dipole is also non uniform.
