Lab 6: The Magnetic Field of a Single Moving Charged Particle OBJECTIVES In this lab you will Compute the magnetic field from a single charged particle at one point in space Compute the magnetic field from the same particle at multiple points in space. Biot-Savart’s law states that as particles move it creates a magnetic field. o 2 ˆ μ q(v×r) B= 4 π r As the particle moves, the magnetic field will change at any given location. You will use VPython to display the magnetic fields at several points surrounding the particle track. You can then watch the fields change as the particle passes the observation locations. 1) Warm Up Problem Problem 1) An electron is moving horizontally to the right with speed 4 x 10 6 m/s. What is the magnetic field due to the electron at the indicated locations? Each location is 5 cm from the electron. Give both magnitude and direction of the magnetic field at each location. CHECKPOINT 1: Ask an instructor to check your work for credit. You may proceed while you wait to be checked off
