E Field Angle
Theoretically, the Electrical (E) field associated with a conductor is at
exactly 90 degrees with respect to that conductor.
It appears, however, that real conductors behave diffeeently and that the E
field associated with a real conductor is at an angle that is slightly
displaced from 90 degrees.
What are the parameters that govern this angle, and what is the range of
angles that is likely to be encountered with typical conductors such as Cu,
Al, Ag and others?What angular difference (if any) is there between a DC
field and an AC field with the same peak V/M amplitude?
