Similarly the electric field intensity and the electric flux density are related by
More specifically, on the boundaries of interested domain, the tangential component of the electric field must be specified on one portion of the boundary, while the normal component of electric flux must be specified on the remaining portion.
With this result, we can now express the electric flux component in terms of electric-field component as
From the physical idea of mass, from the idea of the resultant vector (EV) as electric flux [not member of] and from the ideas relating to the magnetic monopole (MMP) it follows that the gravitational field is an electrical field.
