published by the Boston University
written by Andrew Duffy
This item is a Java applet illustrating the pattern of magnetic lines formed between two charges of various polarity and magnitude.  Students make conclusions about the sign and magnitude of the charges by viewing the field line patterns.  This item is part of a larger collection of physics classroom questions and simulations.
