Title: Ejs Open Source 2 Charge Model with Field Vector, Field Lines, Potential VisualPost by: lookang on September 30, 2010, 10:22:58 pm
Ejs Open Source 2 Charge Model with Field Vector, Field Lines, Potential Visualization Representation Java Applet by Hwang Fu-Kwun. I did not make this, i only slightly edited it.
reference: http://www.phy.ntnu.edu.tw/ntnujava/index.php?topic=539.new#new You can drag either charge and find out the new electric Field Vector, Field Lines, Potential distribution, need to release the charge for simulation to recalculate. The field line are calculated in real time. However, please remember field line is not the same as trajectory for a test charge move in the same field. You can add test charge if the check box were checked and watch the trajectory of test charge. It is easy to draw those vectors which represent electric field at different positions. Because we can calculate the electric field with $\vec{E}=\frac{kq_1}{r_1^2}\hat{r_1}+ \frac{kq_2}{r_2^2}\hat{r_2}$. However, do you know how those field lines were calculated? Hint: The tangential components of electric field line is the same as the direction of electric field at the same point. Answer is Biot–Savart law ! http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Biot%E2%80%93Savart_law [ejsapplet] Title: Re: Ejs Open Source 2 Charge Model with Field Vector, Field Lines, Potential VisualPost by: lookang on September 30, 2010, 10:27:08 pm

05 august
added the field lines arrow heads from http://www.phy.ntnu.edu.tw/ntnujava/index.php?topic=539.new#new add more functions in terms of the slider options finished remixing! enjoy reference: Dhasthagheer Akbhar I need example EJS simulation which used "Model methods to control EJS applets using Java Script" . If I look the code, it will help me lot. I am developing physics simulation for 6 th std students to learn physics interactively. Thanks in advance...... please download the attachment called ejs_group.zip which has a html file on the simulation inside the folder it has the java script generated from Ejs that controls the simulation Title: Re: Ejs Open Source 2 Charge Model with Field Vector, Field Lines, Potential VisualPost by: lookang on September 07, 2011, 03:16:31 am

got a request from teacher
We are doing a PLC project cum lesson study on E-field using Java simulation as one of the ICT tool, in 3-4 weeks time. We would like to request for your help to make the following modifications to the EJS: 1. ability to enter values instead of sliding bars. done2. What is the purpose of value of m=2.0? to experience inertia, F = m*a, so F constant, m double, a halved 3. ability to show at a point X, the E-field due to charge A, E-field due to charge B and thus the resultant field. added E1 and E2 and E with selectable check-box to show, only when m is selected4. if possible (will be most ideal), can show E-field lines due to 3 charges. It appears in 2008 specimen paper. i cannot do this, maybe you can show another applethttp://www.compadre.org/osp/items/detail.cfm?ID=9412 I have attached the .jar file for your reference. Thank you.

more discussion with teacher
My team have tested the EJS when designing our worksheet. We find the following issues with the EJS....... Error in field lines (refer to attached image): 1. The field lines are not drawn correctly. Everytime I vary the number of field lines, a different error in the field lines will appear. Also, chances of error is particularly high if i use the slider bar to change the number of field lines. Error will likely occur when the EJS recalculate the field lines. we solved the issue by allowing the Q2 to draw the field lines at different starting positionsAesthetic: 1. colour scheme: can we request for light background contrasted with dark arrows and field lines. background is actual an equal potential scalar plot, the sim now remembers what the student select, u can also disable it for a white background.field lines are now black and thick. 2. Hide options to change colour of arrows, field lines and background. We felt it is not necessary for students to be able to change colour of arrows, field lines and background. Thank you.

more discussion with teacher.
teacher disagree with the simulation as it shows field lines intersecting the null point in the center. an example is this java applet from a website instead. http://surendranath.tripod.com/Applets/Electricity/FieldLines/EFL.html The imperfection is resolved. Enjoyhttp://surendranath.tripod.com/Applets/Electricity/FieldLines/EFL.html is actually 2 fixed points with fixed lines, may not be so ‘inquiry enabled’. i am not sure if this is correctly represented in http://surendranath.tripod.com/Applets/Electricity/FieldLines/EFL.html when Q1 =1, Q2 = 5*Q1 for example.

Can we have a centre line joining the +ve and -ve charges? done.Centre field line is drawn for +- case but missing in ++ or – cases. I don’t understand why 3 more lines (first picture), I only understand the centre line (2nd picture). The current field lines are drawn starting at equal distance around the circumference of the charge (scientifically accurate), so to get more lines, select a higher number of lines to draw.

made the enhancement here
http://weelookang.blogspot.sg/2013/01/ajc-lesson-with-2-charges-simulation.html made the enhancement to the electric field lines as proportional to strength of Q2. thanks to goh khoon song for the feedback and use in his lessons. Q1 is limited to -1 or 1, hence-fore. download: https://dl.dropbox.com/u/44365627/lookangEJSworkspace/export/ejs_twopointcharges18q2work.jar original authors: Fu-Kwun Hwang and lookang and szeyee enjoy!

enjoy!

The slight loop shape in due to the unbalanced forces at a far distance that deviates the direction of the electron to go slightly towards to the Q1 in this case.
