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).
