### What do the lines represent on an electric field diagram?

At any point on any line, the line proceeds from that point in
the direction that the
field would force a tiny "test-charge" to move from that place.
The "direction" of

test-charge would move.

### In maths what is a tangent and what is a chord?

Tangent:
In geometry, the tangent line (or simply the tangent) is a curve
at a given point and is the straight line that "just touches" the
curve at that point. As it passes through the point where the
tangent line and the curve meet the tangent line is "going in the
same direction" as the curve, and in this sense it is the best
straight-line approximation to the curve at that point.
Chord:
A chord of a curve is a geometric line segment...
