The Physics Front website will be unavailable Friday evening through Saturday afternoon as electrical work occurs in the American Center of Physics server room. Down time will begin at 6PM Eastern Time on Friday. Service is expected to resume by 6PM on Saturday, July 30.
This chapter, part of an online educators' guide, is devoted to a conceptual exploration of electric field. It is framed as a side-by-side comparison of electrostatics and gravity, which helps beginners gain understanding of how charge interaction is described and quantified in physics. Diagrams show how to calculate field strength in both an electric field and a gravitational field. This page is part of a larger online textbook by the author.
