Poisson v1.0  requires a Java 1.1 enabled browser that allows JavaScript to applet communication.

Checking the rho box on the applet allows the user to draw charge density.  The default setting creates a conductor at a fixed potential.

For more information please email wochristian@davidson.edu .


This applet allows users to calculate the potential field from Poisson's equation.  Both fixed conductors and fixed charge distributions are allowed.   The applet is designed to be scripted but may also be used in an interactive design mode using a click and drag metaphor.

Please refer to the script examples below or play with the applet that is embedded in the top of this page.


Please enjoy this applet and send any bug reports or comments to the addresses below.
