This simple applet shows two fixed charges and a moveable test charge. The total Coulomb force on the test charge is displayed. The user can toggle between the fixed charges having like unequal charges or unlike unequal charges. A brief explanation is provided.
This is part of a large collection of Physlet-based (Physics Java Applet) illustrations and tutorials covering introductory physics.
