Item Picture
written by Paul Falstad
This simulation illustrates a wide range of 3D vector fields, including spherical, radial, and linear. The fields can be displayed as vectors, particle trajectories, equipotentials, and other options. The number of particles, vectors, or streamlines, and the field strength are adjustable. Directions and source code are also included.

This is an extension of a 3D Electric and Magnetic Field viewer from the same author.

Please note that this resource requires Java.
