48. E-field:** the electric field or electric intensity E. That field on a spinning charged mass which produces an electrical force, hence linear
motion of the charge. (In the new theory, the E-field CONSISTS OF the spinning
charged mass, moving through a finite change in electrostatic scalar potential, and thus there is a more
fundamental generatrix of FORCE.) Defined as the force per unit charge (i.e., per unit of
charged mass). On a free electron, there may exist two separate E-fields,
one in the direction of motion of the electron (normally due to voltage); and
one at right angles to the electron's motion, due to the time derivative of the A-field. |
