Conductor Simulation

The simulation demonstrates effect on charge distribution and corresponding field lines for the spherical conductor due to charges inside the cavity and outside the sphere. All values used in the simulation are in CGS-ESU System.

OuterRadius = 2cm , InnerRadius = 0.8cm


Drag the selected charge (press on charge to select) using mouse or arrow keys and use mouse scroll or pinch to zoom.
Note 1: Lines are terminated at screen edges so they may not be drawn if charge is out of screen bounds. Note 2: Lines may behave weird(may not appear to follow gauss law) in region where line density is very small
