Motion of a Charged Particle in a Constant and Uniform Electromagnetic Field
Ladino, L. A.; Rondón, S. H.; Orduz, P.
Physics Education, v50 n2 p165-169 Mar 2015
This paper focuses on the use of software developed by the authors that allows the visualization of the motion of a charged particle under the influence of magnetic and electric fields in 3D, at a level suitable for introductory physics courses. The software offers the possibility of studying a great number of physical situations that can significantly facilitate students' understanding of this topic.
