Trajectories in Electric and Magnetic Fields JS Model
written by Wolfgang Christian
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.

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