Chapter 21 WebLab#2 “Charge in a Magnetic Field” Part One * Go to the following website: http://www.surendranath.org/Applets.html * Move your cursor to the upper left corner of the screen, where it says “Applet Menu”. Move your cursor down to where it says “Electricity”. Click on “Charge in a Magnetic Field”. Click on the black rectangle to open the simulation. * Observe the motion of the (positive) charge in the magnetic field. Note the direction of the force on the charge. * Change the strength of the magnetic field and observe the motion. * Change the mass of the particle and observe the motion. * Change the velocity of the particle and observe the motion. Part Two * Go to the following website: http://www.mhhe.com/physsci/physical/giambattista/magnetic/magnetic_field.html * Click on the “Fire!” button to launch the charged particle in the magnetic field. Click and drag on the screen to rotate your view. * Change the strength of the magnetic field and observe the motion.
