Description This work offers an unproblematic teaching tool for the instruction of challeng-ing concept of electric potential difference in a non-uniform electric field. Specifically, mathematical modelling process is employed and managed to comprehend and teach exceedingly difficult concepts of uniform and non-uniform electric fields, electrical potential difference, scalar products of vectors and also concept of path integral. In order to accomplish those tasks, initially a basic conducting panel/sheet, that is simply a wet cardboard, is designed as a part of the apparatus, together with a dc power supply, a multi meter and connecting cables. The established method is interesting in the sense that the 3D wet cardboard is novel, very practical and minimal costing, hence the approach offers physics educators fresh teaching routes and opportunities to clarify the puzzling concept of electrical potential difference and further.
