Dr. Baird publishes a paper in the journal Physics Education

Dr. Bill Baird (physics) has published a paper in the journal Physic Eduction, the direct reference is:   William H Baird 2013 Phys. Educ. 48 589. doi:10.1088/0031-9120/48/5/589.  The paper, titled, "Understanding Gauss's Law Using Spreadsheets" was published in the September 2013 issue of the journal on pages 589-592.   The experiment allows students to investigate electrostatics using a spreadsheet which allows students to better understand charges based on the ability to calculate a large number of charges not available without the use of the spreadsheet.
