a. The particle will slow down, reverse direction and continue in a straight line.
b. The particle will speed up in its original direction and continue in a straight line.
c. The particle will execute a circular trajectory.
d. The particle will execute a parabolic trajectory.
A single mass and a single charge create a gravitational field and an electric field, respectively. A magnetic field is created by a single iron atom. Compare and contrast these types of fields by choosing which statement(s) below are true about them:
Statement A: All three fields are vector fields.
