The Trajectories in Electric and Magnetic Fields model computes a family of trajectories of charges emitted from a point source isotropically and with the same energy. These trajectories create focal points and caustic surfaces meeting the symmetry line in conical cusps.  The simulation enables users to study these trajectories in both crossed and parallel magnetic fields.  The user can vary the initial particle velocity and the field strengths.

The Trajectories in Electric and Magnetic Fields model was developed using the Easy Java Simulations (Ejs) modeling tool.  It is distributed as a ready-to-run (compiled) Java archive.  You can modify this simulation if you have Ejs installed by right-clicking within the plot and selecting "Open Ejs Model" from the pop-up menu item.

Please note that this resource requires at least version 1.6 of Java (JRE).
