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 due to the other two wires.  You can modify this simulation if you install Ejs then right-click within the plot and select "Open Ejs Model" from the pop-up menu.  

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.  Additional Ejs models for physics can be found by searching ComPADRE for Open Source Physics, OSP, or Ejs.
