Website Detail Page

written by Kyle Forinash
This web page contains a simulation on electric potential in a system with multiple charges. The user can drag the charges around the system, viewing how they change the electric potential.  Double-clicking any part in the system displays the equipotential line from that location. Related questions are provided to aid in concept formation.

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