What's the different between Electric Flux and Electric Field ?

electric field gives the physical description about the interaction b/w charges in an open space and mathematically differentiate b/w the number of charges in that particular quantity of electric field.
and electric flux tells specifically the measure of charge's electrific field strength at a particular area of space.
NOTE- WE COULD ALSO GET INFO ABOUT STRENGTH OF ELECTRIC FIELD FROM QUANTITY ELECTRIC FIELD ITSELF, BUT ELECTRIC FLUX GIVE A MORE RICHFUL INFO ABOUT STRENGTH AND WE COULD ALSO USE IT TO MEASURE STRENGTH AT A PARTICULAR PT. OF SPACE

The number of electric lines of force passing through the given surface area which is held perpendicular to the direction of electric lines of force is called electric flux and Electric field is defined as the electric force  per unit charge. The direction of the field is taken to be the direction of the force it would exert on a positive test charge.

For a better understanding of the electric field lines and electric flux you should read the article at http://www.physifeel.com/blog/physics/e … d-lines/6/
