Charged Particle in Uniform Electric and Magnetic Fields

The path of a charged and otherwise free particle in uniform electric and magnetic fields depends on the charge of the particle and the electric and magnetic field strengths and . The force exerted on the particle is . The red cylinder is parallel to the electric field. The blue cylinder is parallel to the magnetic field. The green cylinder points in the direction of the initial velocity of the particle.
