Yes, I agree. But what about the equations of motion? If , for example, we assume that the electric field is along the y-axis and is perpendicular to the velocity, does it mean that the electric field should be only included in the equation of motion along the y-axis. If so how should the...
Here is the exercise that caused all the trouble:
" Consider a charged particle in a constant electric and a constant magnetic field.
a) Derive the equations of motion.
b) Determine the solution for the velocity.
c) Determine the solution for the position.
d) Make a qualitative drawing...
Thank you for the quick reply!
Thank you for the quick reply, but I still have a problem deriving the formula in CGS.
Does this formula completely describe the motion of a charged particle in constant homogeneous electric and magnetic fields? Did I understand it correctly - the magnetic...
Hi there!
I have a problem deriving the formula for the Lorenz force that I found in my lecture notes in Theoretical Mechanics.
The formula is:
\vec{F}=q \cdot \vec{E} + \frac{q \cdot (\vec{v} \times \vec{B})}{c}
Where:
\vec{F} is the Lorentz force
\vec{E} is the electric...
