For Aks – As discussed Lab 1 Physics II
Lab 1 Review textbook Chapter 16 which involves the vector nature of electric forces. In this simulation, the green, red, and blue charges are originally (i.e., at t = 0) at the vertices of an isosceles triangle. The green and blue are fixed in space and the red charge is allowed to move. Find the net Coulomb force (magnitude and direction) on the red object due to the green and blue charged objects after 1.00 s has elapsed.
Run the simulation. You will use the data from the “Time” and “Position” measurement tables (red, green, and blue) to help in calculating individual electrostatic (Coulomb) forces and directions.
Finally, calculate the net Coulomb force, Fc and direction, on the red object after 1.00 s; fill in the blanks on the Lab Answer Sheet to be handed in at the end of this week.
