In each of the figures below some electric field lines are drawn. But in most cases, there are mistakes. For each drawing, select which of the above rules are broken or if the diagram is essentially correct.

## Homework Equations

Rule 1: direction from + to −

Rule 2: number proportional to charge

Rule 3: radial symmetry close to charge

Rule 4: spacing inversely proportional to field magnitude

Rule 5: field tangent to any line

3. The Attempt at a Solution

3. The Attempt at a Solution

For the 1st question: Rule 1 is not violated, Rule 2 is violated since the charge is different, Rule 3 is not violated since there is symmetry, Rule 4 is not violated, Rule 5 is not violated

For the 2nd question: Rule 1 is not violated since it is going to the negative charge, Rule 2 I'm not sure, Rule 3 is violated since there is no symmetry, Rule 4 I don't know, Rule 5 is violated the electric field is not tangent to the field line

Thanks!
