Manipulate the values & variables that affect the electrostatic force as per Coulombs Law
Compute the Coulombs force between the two charges and determine the potential energy of the system
Compare the electrostatic force to the gravitational force for elementary particles & heavy masses (human + Earth)
The interaction between charged objects is a non-contact force that acts over some distance of separation. Charge, charge and distance. Every electrical interaction involves a force that highlights the importance of these three variables. Whether it is a plastic golf tube attracting paper bits, two like-charged balloons repelling or a charged Styrofoam plate interacting with electrons in a piece of aluminum, there is always two charges and a distance between them as the three critical variables that influence the strength of the interaction. By the end of this project, you will be able to do the following using “Wolfram editor”:- To Set up a trial account on the Wolfram notebook edition; State Coulomb's law in terms of how the electrostatic force changes with the distance between two objects; Calculate the electrostatic force between two point charges, such as electrons or protons; Compare the electrostatic force to the gravitational attraction for a proton and an electron; for a human and Earth; Create lines of force and equipotential lines using Wolfram notebook and analyze with variation in magnitude of charges and distance between them; Compute potential energy of the system of charges and illustrate how it alters with change in distance between them.
In a video that plays in a split-screen with your work area, your instructor will walk you through these steps:
Set up a trial account on the Wolfram notebook edition.
Plot the curve of Coulombs force and analyze the variables that affect Coulombs law.
Compute potential energy of the system of charges and practice with alterations.
Calculate and assess the electrostatic force between the two fundamental charges.
Compare the electrostatic force to the gravitational attraction for a proton and an electron.
Determine the lines of force and equipotential lines under different scenarios.
Your workspace is a cloud desktop right in your browser, no download required
In a split-screen video, your instructor guides you step-by-step
The Instructor did a great job explaining the concept of Coulomb's Law and manipulate Coulombs law concepts using Wolfram Notebook, overall the project taught a lot.
What will I get if I purchase a Guided Project?
By purchasing a Guided Project, you'll get everything you need to complete the Guided Project including access to a cloud desktop workspace through your web browser that contains the files and software you need to get started, plus step-by-step video instruction from a subject matter expert.
Are Guided Projects available on desktop and mobile?
Because your workspace contains a cloud desktop that is sized for a laptop or desktop computer, Guided Projects are not available on your mobile device.
Who are the instructors for Guided Projects?
Guided Project instructors are subject matter experts who have experience in the skill, tool or domain of their project and are passionate about sharing their knowledge to impact millions of learners around the world.
Can I download the work from my Guided Project after I complete it?
You can download and keep any of your created files from the Guided Project. To do so, you can use the “File Browser” feature while you are accessing your cloud desktop.
What is the refund policy?
Is financial aid available?
Financial aid is not available for Guided Projects.
Can I audit a Guided Project and watch the video portion for free?
Auditing is not available for Guided Projects.
