Website Detail Page

written by Kyle Forinash
This web page contains a simulation on electric fields in a system with multiple charges.  Students can add charges of different magnitudes, and move them around, viewing how the electric field strength and direction changes.  Questions on the page ask students how the electric field will look with specific sets of charges, and what information can be determined from a charge by the electric field around it.

This page is part of a collection of Java applets with tutorial questions.
