Coulomb Force: What is Wrong JS Model
written by Anne Cox, Wolfgang Christian, and Francisco Esquembre
The Coulomb Force: What is Wrong JS Model asks students to figure out what is wrong with the model. Users observe the force magnitude and direction as they change the position and charge of individual particles and add more particles.

Users can examine and correct the model using Web EJS or JavaScript desktop EJS Ver 6.

Please note that this resource requires at least version 1.5 of Java (JRE).

4. THE PHYSICAL SETTING

G. Forces of Nature
  • 4G (9-12) #3.  There are two kinds of charges?positive and negative. Like charges repel one another, opposite charges attract. In materials, there are almost exactly equal proportions of positive and negative charges, making the materials as a whole electrically neutral. Negative charges, being associated with electrons, are far more mobile in materials than positive charges are. A very small excess or deficit of negative charges in a material produces noticeable electric forces.
