Coulomb Forces Lab I I. User Interface and Simulation Features This simulation features a Cartesian coordinate grid on which you can place up to four positive and four negative stationary charges of 1 C each at desired locations. A positive charge representing a proton is located on the grid. It can be moved to any desired location and its initial velocity vector can be varied. Running the simulation releases the proton and subjects it to the electric forces of the other charges on the grid. A digital display of the components of velocity and acceleration is shown in the upper left. This display can be turned on or off. You may choose to show or hide the velocity and acceleration vectors of the proton, a trail of the path of the proton, and to allow the proton to bounce off the sides of the grid. There are 11 preset combinations of charges to experiment with. In addition, there is a game mode in which you place charges so that the proton will follow an indicated path. A timer is provided, which is synchronized with the velocity values, but runs faster than real time.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
