A stationary electric field is characterized in that mechanical forces that are constant over time are exerted on static electrical charges. Such forces always occur when constant tensions are maintained between any point in an insulating space. In particular, there is a electrostatic fieldif there are only static charges in the insulating room, e.g. B. two or more electrical conductors (electrodes), between which there are potential differences, without electrical currents flowing.
