Mission SE10: Electric Field

Mission SE10 pertains to the concept of an electric field. You should understand the meaning of electric field, the variables that affect and don't affect its intensity, and have some ability to perform simple calculations of electric field intensity. The mission consists of 31 questions organized into 8 Question Groups. You must answer one question from each Question Group to complete the mission. The learning outcomes for this mission are ...

Learning Outcomes

  • The student should be able to define electric field and recognize the variables which effect (and do not effect) the electric field intensity at a given location.
  • The student should be able to use electric field equations and relatively simple numbers to determine the magnitude and the direction of the electric field intensity at a given location.
