What is an electric potential field?

An electric potential field is an area with either a positive or negative charge. Therefore, it does not have an equal number of protons and electrons. This field seeks to achieve neutrality, which would mean either gaining or losing electrons. Therefore, it looks to come into contact with another atom so that it is able to even out its charges.
