written by Scott Schneider
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.
