Problem 24.1: Rank the point charges

Please wait for the animation to completely load.

The bar graph displays the electric flux passing through the cylindrical Gaussian surface (position is given in meters and flux is given in N·m2/C). Drag the surface and, from the flux readings, rank the charges from greatest to smallest. Restart.
