Electrons in fields: electric field

In the part about the path of electrons in the electric field of a plate capacitor students can manipulate the acceleration voltage and the voltage between the capacitor plates of an electron deflection tube. Depending on the experimental settings the reaction of the experiment is displayed on the screen. The students have to accomplish exercises which scaffold learning according to a scientific inquiry process.
