Title Charges and Fields Remote Lab Introduction to Static Electricity
Description This lab is designed for students working remotely. There is a video using Electric Field hockey because at this time, the simulation is still in Java form. I have included clicker questions from Electric field hockey, but I did not put them in the student lab. The learning goals are: Students will be able to 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. Compare electric fields to gravitational fields.
