Problem 24.4: Different size flux detectors to describe a hidden charge density

Please wait for the animation to completely load.

The bar graph displays the electric flux passing through a cubical flux detector and several spherical flux detectors. Drag each detector and observe the flux readings (position is given in meters and flux is given in N·m2/C). Describe the charge distribution in as much detail as possible. The resolution of the detector is 1 mC, and the gray sphere is there for your reference only. Restart.

Physlets were developed at Davidson College and converted from Java to JavaScript using the SwingJS system developed at St. Olaf College.
