This interactive simulation allows users to explore forces exerted on a single charged particle by electric and/or magnetic fields. Fields can be turned on or off, giving users a view of how the particle is affected by exposure to one or both. Users may set initial velocity of the particle and also control the direction of either field. Also included by the author is a set of suggested activities to accompany the simulation. This simulation was created using the Easy Java Simulations (Ejs) modeling tool. It is distributed as a ready-to-run (compiled) Java archive. 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 can be found by searching ComPADRE for Open Source Physics, OSP, or Ejs.
