Problem 25.7: Determine the motion in a region of electric potential

Please wait for the animation to completely load.

The animations show a positive test charge in a region where there is an electric potential, as shown by the equipotential lines (position is given in meters, time is given in seconds, and electric potential is given in volts). The positive test charge is placed at x = 0 m with no initial velocity. Which animation most closely represents the charge's subsequent motion? Restart.
