User: ELETRIC LINES OF FORCE NEVWR CROSS.WHY?

Weegy: Perhaps we should start by suggesting that there really are no "lines" in an electric field (or in a magnetic field, for that matter). The "lines of force" are a convention that allows us to visualize the field. [ But if there were lines, they would not cross because each one is a line of force in the field, and force is affected by other force in a way that prevents the lines from crossing. The force of one line will "push off" the force of another line, and the two will "avoid" each other. Though the lines may not be real, the force of the field is real. This "arms" each line of force with "energy" to "situate" itself relative to other lines of force. The lines of force all "conspire" or "work together" to give a "net effect" to the field; the field is formed as a direct result of the "sum" of the "individual act" of each line. But they do not "cross" each other to do this. Which is pretty amazing since individual lines don't exist. We've arrived back where we started, or so it might seem. But the lines of force, though they may not exist, are part of a real field of force about the electrified object. They interact as forces (because they are each an individual expression of the field) and will not be able to interfere with one another. As a parting shot, consider that the lines of force might follow the basic tendency of things in nature to assume their lowest energy level, and will see "crossing" as requiring extra energy. They (the lines of force) simply want to "snuggle up" along side each other to create the field ]

Electric lines of force do not cross because they represent the unique direction and magnitude of the electric field at every point in space, and the field cannot have two different directions at the same point.
