Lab Worksheet 3 SCI214 – Integrated Science Support Documentation Lab 3_A:   Magnetic Fields  The View The   blue   lines   indicate   the   line   along   which   the   magnetic   field   is   oriented. The red ball is the charged particle. It is always red regardless of the sign of its charge. The three arrows show the directions of the velocity (red), magnetic field (blue), and  acceleration (green). The black circles indicate the region in which the magnetic field is contained if that  feature is selected (see below). To orient your view click TOP or SIDE at the bottom right, or drag your mouse anywhere  in the scene. The Controls Use the slider bars to alter the STRENGTH of the magnetic field, CHARGE on the  particle, the particle’s MASS, the magnitude of the particle’s VELOCITY, and the ANGLE of the  particle’s velocity with respect to the horizontal. Select INFINITE and the field fills all of space; select CONTAINED and the field is  confined to within the black circles. Play begins the animation of the particle’s motion. Select FOCUS VIEW ON PARTICLE to fix the particle in the center. That is, you are in  the particle’s rest frame. Now, a couple of points concerning the design; you will note that there are five variables you  need to look at in order to get a complete picture of what’s going on.  This suggests five different  experiments where four of the variables are controlled and one is assigned as an experimental  variable. For example, in experiment 1, I’ve altered the field strength of the particles but kept the  mass, charge, velocity and angle of the motion the same.  In a second experiment I’ve altered the  charge   of  the  particle   and   held   the   other   variables  constant.  Note   that  in   every   case  the  dependent variables were the length of velocity and length of acceleration vectors.    In my exploration I never really did take a look at velocity and angle of motion, but you are
