relation created by Caroline Hall

A related animation by the same authors that shows charge separation and creation of an electric field. In this model, five negative and five positive charges of equal magnitude are shown. The positive charges are separated one-by-one at constant velocity. It clearly depicts how the electric field grows as each positive charge is moved into place.
