Electrostatic forces drive this microscopic comb actuator from Sandia National Labs. They have movies showing it connected to all sorts of micro-mechanical gizmos.

Week 3 Highlights: Gauss' Law

There are always 3 different things you need to turn in each week. See "assignments" link on the left.
1) CAPA homework (online, due Friday night - technically, by 8 AM Sat morning)
2) Tutorial homework (submitted hard copy, at the START of your recitation on Tuesday) and
3) Tutorial pretests (online, due Mon night - technically, by 8 AM Tuesday morning)
All are on a regular schedule, every week!

Don't forget about # 3, you need to do the pretest over the weekend (or on Monday)!
