Description:

The EJS Electric Field and Potential Model shows the electric field and potential for cylindrical and spherical symmetry. In both symmetries, there are co-centric charged surfaces where the outer surface is grounded. The model reports the force on a test charge (yellow) between the co-centric surfaces as well as the voltage. You can modify this simulation if you have Ejs installed by right-clicking within the plot and selecting “Open Ejs Model” from the pop-up menu item. The Electric Field and Potential model was created using the Easy Java Simulations (Ejs) modeling tool. It is distributed as a ready-to-run (compiled) Java archive. Double clicking the ejs_em_ElectricFieldPotential.jar file will run the program if Java is installed. Ejs is a part of the Open Source Physics Project and is designed to make it easier to access, modify, and generate computer models. Additional Ejs models are available. They can be found by searching ComPADRE for Open Source Physics, OSP, or Ejs.
