     Electric field is energy per unit charge FALSE

     Electric field is force per volt FALSE

     Electric field and force are identical FALSE

     Electric field is force times charge FALSE

     Electric field is force per unit charge TRUE

    Electric field

    The strength or magnitude of the field at a given point

    is defined as the force that would be exerted on a

    positive test charge of 1 coulomb placed at that point;

    the direction of the field is given by the direction of

    that force.

       E = F/Q = kQ/r²

       Q = F/E F = QE

    in Newtons/coulomb OR volts/meter

       k = 1/4πε₀ = 8.99e9 Nm²/C²
