Please wait for the animation to completely load.
In the animation there are two black fixed charges and a blue movable positive test charge (position is given in meters and force is given in newtons). The test charge has an attached arrow that indicates the direction and relative magnitude of the net electric force. The charge on the left is 25 times that of the right-hand charge. The initial separation is d = 8.0 m. Drag the test charge and note that the force is displayed in the yellow message box. Restart.
