The Physics Teacher
written by Scott W. Bonham, John S. Risley, and Wolfgang Christian
One of the great difficulties in teaching electrostatics is the abstract nature of the subject. We describe six exercises in electrostatics, how they were used at NCSU, and give suggestions how they might be used in other contexts.
