Website Detail Page

written by Kyle Forinash
This is a collection of introductory Java applets and tutorial material on the topic of electrostatics.  Each page contains a simulation and a brief explanation.  Most simulations also include questions to guide the user in analyzing and applying the concepts explored in the applet.  Electric fields and forces, field lines, and equipotential lines are among the included topics.

This resource is part of a larger collection of Java simulations by the author on a variety of topics taught in undergraduate physics courses.
