Ex = – 4 + 14xy

Ey = 7x² – 7z²

Ez = -14yz

Step-by-step explanation:

The relationship between Electric field Er(x, y, z) and Electric potential, V, is a differential relationship:

Er(x, y, z) = -dV/dr(x, y, z)

Where r(x, y, z) = distance in x, y and z components.

The x component of the electric field is:

Ex = -dV/dx

Given that:

V = 4x – 7x²y + 7yz²

Ex = -dV/dx

Ex = -(4 – 14xy)

Ex = -4 + 14xy

The y component of the electric field is:

Ey = -dV/dy

Ey = -(-7x² + 7yz²)

Ey = 7x² – 7z²

The z component of the electric field is:

Ez = -dV/dz

Ez = -(14yz)

Ez = -14yz
