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.

Please note that this resource requires at least version 1.5 of Java (JRE).
