Mission SE11: Electric Field Equation

Mission SE11 focuses on the inverse square relationship between the electric field intensity at a location and the distance that the location is from the source charge. The mission consists of 36 questions organized into 9 Question Groups. You must answer one question from each Question Group to complete the mission. The learning outcome for this mission is ...

Learning Outcome

  • The student should be able to use the inverse square law to predict the effect that an alteration of the distance from a charged object would have upon the electric field intensity.
