## Computer Program Detail Page

written by Andrew Duffy
This is an Easy Java Simulation based model where students can explore the concepts of the electric field and the electric potential, in a two-dimensional situation. The model can include between 1 to 5 charged particles, and a test charge can be moved around the plane near these charged particles to sample both the electric field and the electric potential, produced by the charged particles. The simulation also can display a grid of field vectors, which show the direction and, qualitatively, the magnitude of the field.
