Charge Motion in a Potential

Charge Motion in a Potential

This applet is designed to allow you to explore charged particle motion in an electrostatic potential. It also illustrates
graphically that the electric field "pushes" perpendicular to itself by showing the field lines as a particle tries to enter a region of
field which opposes its entry.
