Is It Possible for Equipotential Lines to Cross?

Answer

No, it is not possible for equipotential lines to cross. This is because equipotential lines are lines are lines made by joining points which have constant voltage. It is physically not possible that points in the same plane can represent different voltage.

If this means voltage potential it is a conservative force so it is path independant, much like gravity, it doesn't matter how somthing got to where it is it will still have the same

If i understand your question, it's because a equipotential line is the line where voltage (for example) constant. A line with voltage = 2, can't cross a line with voltage = 3. If
