Ejs Three Current-Carrying Wires Model
written by Andrew Duffy
The Ejs Three Current-Carrying Wires model is a ranking task exercise involving the ranking of the current magnitudes in three parallel current-carrying wires. The simulation displays the net force on each wire because of the other two wires. You can modify this simulation if you have Ejs installed by right-clicking within the plot and selecting "Open Ejs Model" from the pop-up menu item.
Ejs Three Current-Carrying Wires model was created using the Easy Java Simulations (Ejs) modeling tool. It is distributed as a ready-to-run (compiled) Java archive. Double clicking the ejs_bu_three_wires.jar file will run the program if Java is installed. Ejs is a part of the Open Source Physics Project and is designed to make it easier to access, modify, and generate computer models. Additional Ejs models for physics are available. They can be found by searching ComPADRE for Open Source Physics, OSP, or Ejs.
Please note that this resource requires at least version 1.5 of Java (JRE).
