This Demonstration models the motion of charged particles in the uniform electric and magnetic fields. Using the sliders, the user can adjust the particle properties and set values for the fields. Trajectories of positive and negative charges are red and blue, respectively.


Note: this model is based on approximation methods. Inaccuracies may occur for extreme low or high values. If the "relativity" box is left unchecked, a nonrelativistic approximation is given.
