The Physics Teacher

This record is currently in the approval process for inclusion into the Open Source Physics collection. If you feel this record should be given priority you may contact the editor using our feedback form.

written by Scott W. Bonham, John S. Risley, and Wolfgang Christian
One of the great difficulties in teaching electrostatics is the abstract nature of the subject. We describe six exercises in electrostatics, how they were used at NCSU, and give suggestions how they might be used in other contexts.
