Java via CheerpJ: We've partnered with Leaning Technologies to allow our Java sims to run in a browser.
This sim is not compatible with iPads.
Java Version: Supports offline use and offers improved performance.

### Description

Play hockey with electric charges. Place charges on the ice, then hit start to try to get the puck in the goal. View the electric field. Trace the puck's motion. Make the game harder by placing walls in front of the goal. This is a clone of the popular simulation of the same name marketed by Physics Academic Software and written by Prof. Ruth Chabay of the Dept of Physics at North Carolina State University.

### Sample Learning Goals

• Determine the variables that affect how charged bodies interact.
• Predict how charged bodies will interact.
• Describe the strength and direction of the electric field around a charged body.
• Use free-body diagrams and vector addition to help explain the interactions.
