The Physics Source website will be unavailable Friday evening through Saturday afternoon as electrical work occurs in the American Center of Physics server room. Down time will begin at 6PM Eastern Time on Friday. Service is expected to resume by 6PM on Saturday, July 30.
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.
