This student activity is designed to help upper division undergraduate students build conceptual understanding of linear, surface and volume charge densities. Students are required to "act out" both uniform and non-uniform densities by forming groups appropriate for uniform and non-uniform densities. An instructor's guide is available to help guide the activity along with comments about instructors who have used this activity in class.

This material is part of the Paradigms in Physics project at Oregon State University. This work promotes the use of active student learning in upper division physics courses. Both learning materials and learning strategies are provided to help both students and instructors.
