**1. Homework Statement**

I am wanting to get position (x and y) of a particle moving in a magnetic field as a function of time.

So, we have a particle of mass m, charge q, velocity (Vx,0,0) moving in a magnetic field (o,o, Bz) starting at t=0 as (0,0,0), what is X(t) and Y(t).

**2. Homework Equations**

Lorentz Force F=q(VxB)

F=Ma

**3. The Attempt at a Solution**

Ax = q Vy Bz

Ay = - q Vx Bz

follows that

X(y,t) = (q.Y.Bz + A1)t + A2

Y(x,t) = (-q.X.Bz +A3)t + A4

but not sure where to go from here

cheers
