Description:

These Physlets calculate electrostatic potentials by numerically solving Poisson's equation in the presence of spherical and rectangular conductors, charge densities, and dielectrics. The gradient of this potential is then calculated in order to display the electric field and the divergence is calculated to display the induced charge.
