The PSRC website will be unavailable Friday evening through Saturday afternoon as electrical work occurs in the American Center of Physics server room. Down time will begin at 6PM Eastern Time on Friday. Service is expected to resume by 6PM on Saturday, July 30.
This simulation displays the motion of a charged particle in a capacitor. Users can adjust the strength of field, velocity and mass of the moving particle, and magnitude of the charge. The simulated path can be viewed in continuous or step mode, with or without vector display. Also available for display are bar graphs depicting kinetic and potential energy. This item is part of a larger collection of physics simulations sponsored by the MAP project (Modular Approach to Physics).
