Draw Equipotential Surfaces Corresponding to a Uniform Electric Field in the Z-directions. - Physics

Question

Answer in Brief
Diagram

Draw equipotential surfaces corresponding to a uniform electric field in the z-directions. 

Solution

For constant electric field vector E 

For increasing electric field 

Difference:

For constant electric field, the equipotential surfaces are equidistant for the same potential difference between these surfaces; while for increasing electric field, the separation between these surfaces decreases, in the direction of the increasing field, for the same potential difference between them.
