Focus on Fields

Iinteractive models, animated sequences and simulated experiments.


Focus on Fields features 16 interactive topic areas covering the study of fields at the senior physics level.

The software includes interactive models, animated sequences and simulated experiments which are integrated with reference sections where theory is explained and relevant formulae are derived.

Focus on Fields is suitable for use with secondary students ages 14-19.


Students can practice experiments before actual lab work.

Use the program as a revision aid.

The CD also contains a comprehensive animated reference section, linked to topic area.

Topics Covered in Focus on Fields include:
  • Alpha particle scattering [1+2]
  • DC motor
  • Deflection by electric fields
  • Deflection by magnetic fields [1+2]
  • Dynamo
  • Magnetic field plotting
  • Electromagnetic induction
  • Force on a current carrying conductor
  • Mass Spectrometer
  • Millikan's oil drop experiment
  • Motion in a uniform gravitational field
  • Planetary orbits (1+2)
  • Thompson's experiment for e/m
Electric Fields
In demonstration mode the program displays the moving particles and what happens in slow motion.
