SUBJECT: Surface Integrals
DESCRIPTION: This Shockwave visualization illustrates the concept of surface integrals. By selecting a surface type and manipulating the source charge, you can see the effect on the surface integral of the dot product of the field and the surface element for the various configurations. The red arrows represent the electric field at that surface element. The surface types are icosahedron, geodome, and rectangular.
