Problem 25.6: Draw the electric potential vs. x graph

Please wait for the animation to completely load.

Each animation shows a negative test charge moving under the influence of an electric potential (position is given in meters, time is given in seconds, and velocity is given in meters/second). Restart.

For each animation,

  1. Sketch a graph representing the electric potential versus x for the region shown in the animation.
  2. Sketch a graph representing the electric field versus x for the region shown in the animation.
