Point Charge Electric Field Demo Model
written by Wolfgang Christian
The Point Charge Electric Field Demo model shows the electric field with multiple point charge configurations and vector field visualizations. Users can select these configurations from a drop down menu or can create their own configurations.
The Point Charge Electric Field Demo model was created using the Easy Java Simulations (EJS) modeling tool. It is distributed as a ready-to-run (compiled) Java archive. Double click the ejs_em_PointChargeElectricFieldDemo.jar file to run the program if Java is installed.
Please note that this resource requires at least version 1.5 of Java.
