Introduction to Electrostatics Principles
In the following pages simulations are used to help provide an introduction to various Electrostatics concepts. These includes the difference between conductors and insulators, charging by conduction and induction and the triboelectric series. 17 out of the 18 simulations used are PhysLet based simulations. The 18th, the one about the Van de Graff generator, is a translation of a simulation of a simulation developed in Spanish by Professor Angel Franco Garcia.
