Charge Trajectories in 3D Electrostatic Fields Model 

written by Andrew Duffy

The Charge Trajectories in 3D Electrostatic Fields model investigates a charged particle, and the forces exerted on that charged particle by electric and/or magnetic fields. First, see how the charge behaves when exposed to just an electric field. Then, see how the charge behaves when exposed to just a magnetic field. Finally, if you'd like, turn both fields on and see what happens.

The Charge Trajectories in 3D Electrostatic Fields model was created using the Easy Java Simulations (EJS) modeling tool.  It is distributed as a ready-to-run (compiled) Java archive.  Double clicking the ejs_bu_duffy_Charge_Trajectories_in_3D_Electrostatic_Fields.jar file will run the program if Java is installed.
