Day 93: An Interesting Electric Field
AP Physics C: Today we looked at AP 2000 E&M #2 — charges in a equilateral triangle. According to the problem, there are TWO points were E=0 along the altitude of the triangle. I wrote a Glowscript program to visualize and graph the electric field as the test charge rises from the base of the triangle to the the top.
GlowScript program: E-field of Equilateral Triangle
Next week when students write a program to display the E-field around a dipole, students will have the option to do this scenario instead.
