    The Lorentz force in the MKS and CGS measurement systems

    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...

    The Lorentz force in the MKS and CGS measurement systems

    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...

    The Lorentz force in the MKS and CGS measurement systems

    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...

    The Lorentz force in the MKS and CGS measurement systems

    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...
