Detail Page

written by Kyle Forinash
This web page contains a simulation on the electrostatic force between two charges. The user can move the charges to see how the force between them changes in magnitude and direction.  Using only the information given, students must determine the sign and magnitude of the charges.

This page is part of a collection of Java applets with tutorial questions designed for undergraduate physics students.
