sir/mam,i have learned that no two electric field lines can intersect,but if two electric field lines does intersect each other,why cant we take the resultant of the two directions as the direction of the electric field at the point of intersection?

Expert Answer:

Because these are field lines and not field vectors. So, their resultant cannot be found as such.
