A Simple Electric Field Probe in a Gauss's Law LaboratoryThe Physics Teacher
AbstractEarly in our calculus-based introductory course, students are introduced to electric fields and sometimes struggle with the abstraction of a vector field. They have less familiarity with the phenomena associated with electric fields, and the connection between phenomena and mathematical formalism is weaker. Our very next topic is Gauss's law.
