How to use, build or buy a Van de Graaff generator. Links to Van de Graaff or electrostatic websites.
A very useful site with numerous links on all aspects of electrostatics.
Basics of electrostatics and properties of electricity. Ohm's Law and basic circuitry used to see the effect of resistance on current.
An interactive multimedia site that allow for charges at any point in a field strength is measure.
A difficult project to construct (there are links to a simpler generator) is described called 'Kelvin's Thunderstorm'
This represents a course delivering Electrostatics, Magnetism, DC Circuits, Light and some problems.This could be a useful resource to the right person - probably an adult wanting to learn about ...
Poisson calculates electrostatic potentials by numerically solving Poisson's equation in the presence of spherical and rectangular conductors, charge densities and dielectrics.
Applet simulating particles connected by springs in a 2D world. Includes gravity/electrostatic forces between particles, air resistance and more.
Practical activities to introduce electrostatics and to make links with current electricity. Some could be used by younger children as an introduction, older pupils can develop concepts.
Robert J. Van de Graaff (1901 - 1967) developed an electrostatic particle accelerator (now called a Van de Graaff generator)used in nuclear research.
