Electrostatics Web Activity Name: David Barclay Date: 4/8/2011 Period: 2 Go to the following website and complete the 20 questions using simulations A through I. Type your answers on this sheet and feel free to take screenshots if they are helpful. http://homepages.ius.edu/kforinas/physlets/electrostatics/electrostatics.html 1. You cannot tell which is positive and negative, the only clue we know is that one is positive and one is negative. 2. Both have the same charge because they are both attracted to each other in the same magnitude, as shown by the lines. 3. Charges D,E,A are all the same charge and C, B are the same charge because we know that opposites attract and likes repulse. 4. The force on charge a by charge b and vice versa are equal and opposite and thus follow Newton’s third law. The charges are no longer equal and opposite when another charge is brought into the mix because all the charges have to be equal and opposite and thus cause vectors.
