Target Game—Distance/Force Relationship

This Target Game—Distance/Force Relationship interactive also includes:

Explore the relationship between the distance and the force of charged particles. Scholars adjust the location of charged particles to change the path of a launched particle. By displaying the electric field, they can make a connection between the force of the charge and the motion of the particle.
