- Using the electric field lines representation, model qualitatively the direction and strength of electric fields produced by:
- simple point charges
- pairs of charges
- parallel charged plates.
- Analyse the effects of a moving charge in an electric field, in order to relate potential energy, work and equipotential lines, by applying: (ACSPH105)
