written by Brian W. Adrian and Robert G. Fuller
This paper describes a qualitative investigation of introductory college physics students' understandings of the electric field prior to and following instruction. Four aspects of electric fields are examined: existence/definition (or mental construct), source, vector representation, and superposition. Results are discussed as a means for improving the development of the physics curriculum.
