Requirements

Drag a positively charged object around a stationary object that can be positive or negative, and observe the strength and direction of forces generated by the charged objects. Using the "trace pointers" feature to draw conclusions about the pattern of forces felt by charged objects and begin to map out a representation of the electric field generated by the objects.
