Point Charge Electric Field and Potential 2D Model
written by Andrew Duffy
The Point Charge Electric Field and Potential model explores the concepts of the electric field and the electric potential, in a two-dimensional situation. You can turn on 1 to 5 charged particles, and move a test charge around the plane near these charged particles to sample both the electric field and the electric potential, produced by the charged particles, at various points. You can also turn on a grid of field vectors, which show the direction and, qualitatively, the magnitude of the field at a grid of equally spaced points in the plane in which the charged particles are located.
