3-D Vector Magnetostatic Field Applet


3-D Vector Magnetostatic Field Applet

Logo for 3-D Vector Magnetostatic Field Applet
This Java applet is a demonstration in magnetostatics that graphically displays the magnetic field for a vast array of 3-dimensional current distributions. The user can choose the field lines to be either a velocity field (where the particles move along the field lines) or a force field (where the particles move as if they were tiny little magnets). The view can be one of the particles moving with a fixed velocity (with and without the magnetic potential), magnetic field vectors (with and... More
