Title: Cosmic Rays trapped Into Power Lines Magnetic Field
Post by: nalzayed on December 04, 2008, 04:28:58 am
I am so happy to discover this amazing place on the web.
I have a point and wonder if help can be provided?
I am writing an article where I discuss the issue of the Health effect of EMF of power lines.
I think that this effect could be due to charged particles trapped by the magnetic field of power lines. These particles include electrons and positrons originated from cosmic rays.
I would like to make some simulation (Animation) of what can happen if a few electrons came across a region where strong magnetic fields are available? Could they be trapped? and  if so, would it be possible to animate this action?

In short; I hope I can have some visual drawing that display magnetic lines, and few charged particles trapped inside.

Deep thanks

I would suggest you get the information about the energy for those electrons and positrons originated from cosmic rays, intensity of cosmic ray to estimate how many generated electrons.
You can estimate the current in the power line (from power and voltage) and calculate the magnetic field strength.

Please check out Charged particle motion in E/B Field (http://www.phy.ntnu.edu.tw/ntnujava/index.php?topic=36.0),too!
