This resource is part of 2 Physics Front Topical Units.


Topic: "Static" Electricity
Unit Title: Teaching About Electrostatics

This free online textbook was created by a veteran professor who blends written materials from "lectures that worked" with calculus-based problems and solutions.  The first two chapters deal with electrostatic phenomena.
