Vector Field with Sources and Sinks

This Demonstration plots the Coulombic vector field for up to 20 point charges with individually selectable signs and magnitudes. Positive and negative charges appear with yellow and green backgrounds, respectively, and can be moved with locators. The range of the plot can be varied in steps from ±20 up to ±1000.
