E x B Trajectory Model
written by Anne Cox
The EJS ExB Trajectory model simulates the motion of a charged particle in uniform electric and magnetic fields. The model is incomplete and users need to complete the equations of motion using the Lorentz force law. 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.
The ExB Trajectory 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_em_ExBTrajectory.jar file will run the program if Java is installed. Ejs is a part of the Open Source Physics Project and is designed to make it easier to access, modify, and generate computer models. Additional Ejs models are available. They can be found by searching ComPADRE for Open Source Physics, OSP, or Ejs.
Please note that this resource requires at least version 1.5 of Java (JRE).
