View Resource Hyperphysics-Capacitors

This web page, created by Rod Nave of Georgia State University, provides a hyperlinked concept map covering the physics of capacitors. Topics ranging from the basics of energy storage and capacitor geometry to applications of capacitors are included. Simple diagrams help the user understand the related equations. This item is part of a large hyperlinked resource covering all of physics that...

View Resource Hyperphysics-Electric Field

In this free resource topics are connected in a well-organized concept map. One click takes the teacher from electric field to related topics such as Gauss' Law, capacitance, and calculations related to force and field potential. This item is part of a larger collection under continuing development by Dr. Rod Nave, Georgia State University.

View Resource A Frying Pan Electrophorus

This web page, authored and curated by David P. Stern, provides instructions for building an electrophorus from common household items. This type of capacitor was invented by Volta and may have been used to amplify voltage in his experiments. A historical perspective and links to other materials on electrostatics is provided. A Spanish translation is also available.

View Resource Molecular Expressions: Electricity and Magnetism - Interactive Java Tutorials

This page is an index to the interactive Java tutorials developed to help students understand topics in electricity and magnetism. Created by Florida State University, the site contains tutorials about concepts such as capacitance, Ohm's Law, and creation of a silicon seascape. These are simply a few, the website contains almost any type of physics related concept you could desire. It is a great...

View Resource Capacitance Tutorial

This student interactive tutorial, by Michael Davidson of Florida State University, focuses on the factors influencing capacitance. An interactive applet allows visitors to select various combinations of dielectrics, plate areas, and distances and the image adjusts to match those specifications and the capacitance is calculated.
