This java applet illustrates electrostatic fields and potentials and static current distributions in two dimensions. It offers a broad range of interactive simulations, from simple single and double charges to highly complex dielectrics and currents. The user can charges, conductors, and dielectrics to the simulation. The "Full Directions" link provides help for running the simulation and hints about the physics involved. This is part of a large collection of applets covering topics in waves, sound electricity and magnetism, and quantum mechanics.
