[4:45 PM] Use Your Mac To Learn About Electric Fields

Yves Pelletier, the maker of the excellent GIF animation tool GIFbuilder, has released yet another educational/learning application for the Mac. M. Pelletier has released YP Electric Field, which helps simulate electric fields. According to M. Pelletier:

Yves Pelletier announces the availability of YP Electric Field 1.0, a new learning tool about electromagnetism.

YP Electric Field simulates up to 26 electric charges (located in the same plane) and draws lines of force, equipotential lines and electric field vectors in the area surrounding the point charges. The user can move the charges and change their numerical value. A probe measures the electric potential and the magnitude and direction of the magnetic field at any position.

System Requirements: YP Electric Field runs on any Macintosh computer with MAC OS 7.0 or better. It needs about 250 Kb on your hard disk and 1 Mb of RAM. The software runs on older models with 68000 processors (Mac Plus, Mac Classic), but simulations are slower.

The product is priced at US$20 and a demo is available. You can find more information on YP Electric Field at M. Pelletier's web site.
