Title: Electric Field Web Assignment No. 3
Description: Web assignment uses an embedded applet by Physics 1. Three point charges are placed in a line, and the user is asked questions about the field strength and direction at various locations around the point charges. List of helpful resources included.
Time Required Under one hour.
Course: Second semester, introductory physics.
Audience: College General Ed, High School
Prerequisites Skills: Electric field, Coulomb's law, charge distribution, vector addition, vector algebra.
Learning Objectives: To understand how the electric field varies around point charges, and to practice vector summation. Also to illustrate how the strength of an electric field is represented with a field plot.
