Free
By
University of Colorado Boulder

Topics

Electrostatics

Coulomb's Law

Description

Visualize the electrostatic force that two charges exert on each other. Observe how changing the sign and magnitude of the charges and the distance between them affects the electrostatic force.

Sample Learning Goals

Relate the electrostatic force magnitude to the charges and the distance between them
Explain Newton's third law for electrostatic forces
Use measurements to determine Coulomb’s constant
Determine what makes a force attractive or repulsive
