What is shown :

  • Labels : X and Y distances for the charge you move
  • Labels : Net force magnitude on the charge you move
  • Vectors : Net force vector on each charge

Things to remember:

  • You can move any of the charges at any time.
  • Try isolating two charges at a time.
  • "Refresh" will restore the charges to their initial positions.

Your tasks:
