This simulation can be used to trace the electric potential lines and the electrical field lines in a region where the electrical field is uniform. It also allows the user to visualize the motion, and energy of a charge placed in this region.

The user can change the electrical field, the charge, its mass, and its initial velocity. Details on how to use the applet are available under Applet Help on the top left corner of the simulation window.

This item is part of a larger collection of  simulation-based physics modules sponsored by the MAP project (Modular Approach to Physics).

Please note that this resource requires Java Applet Plug-in.
