 Spanish term or phrase: carga de prueba En el campo de la Electrostática hemos detectado que la mayoría de los estudiantes asocian la existencia de campo eléctrico creado por una carga puntual en un punto del espacio, a la presencia de una carga de prueba en este punto. Además, afirman que el sentido del vector campo viene determinado por el signo de la carga de prueba, con lo cual, si no hay carga de prueba no hay campo. Anyone know what this is in English? It's quite hard to find sources because the term is used also in Law.

Mathematical introduction
The concept of electric potential (denoted by: φ, φE or V) is closely linked with potential energy, thus:
UE = qφ
where UE is the electric potential energy of a test charge q due to the electric field. Note that the potential energy and hence also the electric potential is only defined up to an additive constant: one must arbitrarily choose a position where the potential energy and the electric potential is zero.

16) Se sabe que la intensidad de un campo eléctrico E = F / q. De esta definición se podría deducir que la intensidad del campo eléctrico en un punto de él:
I es directamente proporcional a al fuerza sobre la carga de prueba
II es inversamente proporcional a la carga de prueba

Fields have two measures: a field force and a field flux. The field force is the amount of "push" that a field exerts over a certain distance. The field flux is the total quantity, or effect, of the field through space. Field force and flux are roughly analogous to voltage ("push") and current (flow) through a conductor, respectively, although field flux can exist in totally empty space (without the motion of particles such as electrons) whereas current can only take place where there are free electrons to move. Field flux can be opposed in space, just as the flow of electrons can be opposed by resistance. The amount of field flux that will develop in space is proportional to the amount of field force applied, divided by the amount of opposition to flux. Just as the type of conducting material dictates that conductor's specific resistance to electric current, the type of material occupying the space through which a magnetic field force is impressed dictates the specific opposition to magnetic field flux.
Whereas an electric field flux between two conductors allows for an accumulation of free electron charge within those conductors, an electromagnetic field flux allows for a certain "inertia" to accumulate in the flow of electrons through the conductor producing the field.
