EM Wave Physlet-Based Curriculum

These examples of curricular material appear in Section 9.8. Follow a link on the left to go to the individual Physlet problems found in that section and several bonus problems only available on this CD. Below is a brief description of each animation.

Chapter Problems:

9.8.1: The above animations represent objects and their magnetic fields. There are three animations given. Double-click within the animations to create a magnetic field line.

9.8.2: A DC circuit with a capacitor is shown fully charged. On the right are four graphs representing the electric field and magnetic field at point P between the capacitor plates.

9.8.3:  An AC circuit with a capacitor is shown. On the right are four graphs representing the current at point O and the displacement current at point P.
9.8.4: The above animation represents a traveling electromagnetic wave in the z direction. The electric and magnetic field are represented with the magnetic field not drawn to scale.  9.8.5: The above animation represents a traveling electromagnetic wave in the z direction. The electric and magnetic field are represented with the magnetic field not drawn to scale.
