This electrophorus, or change carrier produces a spark that can be felt, seen, and heard. Materials needed, assembly, and an explanation of results are also provided. Also featured are directions to store up an even larger...

View Resource Connecting Concepts to Problem-solving

This paper, presented at the 2001 Physics Education Research Conference, offers a new way to approach homework problems in electrostatics through the use of “bridging exercises” as part of students’ homework. These exercises encourage students to solve problems by starting with developed physics concepts and models.
