Main Document

Point Charge Electric Field in 1D Model 

written by Andrew Duffy

In this simulation, students investigate the electric field at various points along a line. They can activate one or two charged particles and set the charge from -30 to 30 nC.  A graph showing the electric field as a function of position may be viewed or hidden. Net electric field is calculated at the bottom of the screen.  

This applet was created with EJS, Easy Java Simulations, a modeling tool that allows users without formal programming experience to generate computer models and simulations.
