Charged particle motion in E/M Field

Charged particle motion in E/M Field

This applet simulates the motion of a charged particle in uniform electric and magnetic fields. The user can set the x,y, and z components of the electric field as well as the magnitude of the magnetic field, which is set to always point in the positive z direction. The user can also set the initial velocity of the charged particle. Then the applet displays the path of the charged particle, with instantaneous velocity and force vectors.... Show More
