Obviously electricity can cause wires and devices to heat up and even burn. But that is only because of the amount of resistance it encounters.
Traveling from point A to point B. But what is its temperature in its natural state. If it even has a natural state? Does it even have a temperature?
If there is no resistance?
temperature is a term not a physical thing.
It was made up to describe the difference in what mater behaves like.
The atoms move, in some materials slow, in some materials faster, this is called the Brownian motion.
If the brownian motion is very chaotic, we say the temperature is high, if it is less chaotic, we say the temperature is lower.
If the atoms have no motion at all relative to each other, they are at the absolute zero, the lowest temperature we can imagine. No motion at
In the electric field there is no motion, there is no temperature because nothing moves.
The slope of the field changes, means the potential vector is changing, but nothing is moving
...so NO, electric field has no temperature !
but it can cause some !
