Item Picture
written by Andrew Duffy
In this interactive simulation, students investigate the connection between electric field and electric potential at various points along a line. Users can select one or two charged particles, positive or negative charge, and location in reference to the test charge.  Tables are provided to display the values of the electric field and potential at the position of the point charge.   Graphs can be displayed that show both the electric field and electric potential as a function of position.  This item may be opened online, or can be freely downloaded in xml format or as a JAR file.

This applet was created with EJS, Easy Java Simulations, a modeling tool that allows users without formal programming experience to generate computer models and simulations.
