Main Document

Lorentz force on a current carrying wire java applet 

written by Loo Kang Wee and Francisco Esquembre

This program simulates the force exerted by a magnetic field between two magnets on an electrical current trough a wire.

The wire is kept in equilibrium in the absence of gravity, suspended on a spring and will oscillate when the battery (which is connected to the ends of the wire) is turned on and off, the angle of the wire with respect to the magnetic field is changed, or the poles of the magnets are switched.

This 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_ntnu_LorentzForcewee01.jar file will run the program if a Java runtime is installed.
