Item Picture
written by Andrew Duffy
In this interactive simulation, students can explore the concepts of electric field and electric potential in a two-dimensional situation. The user can display 1 to 5 charged particles and move a test charge around the plane to explore both the electric field and the electric potential produced by the particles at various points.  The sign and magnitude of the charges can be adjusted, and a grid of field vectors can also be turned on. This item may be freely downloaded in xml format or as a JAR file.  

This applet was created with EJS, Easy Java Simulations, a modeling tool that allows users without formal programming experience to generate computer models and simulations.
