The following simulation shows trajectory for a charged particle in electric and/or magnetic field.


The magnetic field B is always in Z direction in the simulation, however, you can change Ex,Ey or Ez with a slider.
The initial condition is \vec{B}=B_0 \hat{z}, E=0 , \vec{v}=v_0 \hat{y} , so the result is a circular motion.

If you add E field, then you will find \vec{V_d}=\frac{\vec{E}\times\vec{B}}{|\vec{B}|^2} (E cross B drift).
The particle will drift along \vec{V_d}

  • Please feel free to post your ideas about how to use the simulation for better teaching and learning.
  • Post questions to be asked to help students to think, to explore.
  • Upload worksheets as attached files to share with more users.
Let's work together. We can help more users understand physics conceptually and enjoy the fun of learning physics!
