Forces Between Charged Particles

Here we will learn to analyse the forces between charged particles and uniform magnetic fields which are affected by two factors:

  • Acceleration, perpendicular to the field, of charged particles
  • The force on the charge

The equations we will be exploring here are:

r = \frac{mv}{qB} F_B = qvB sin(\theta)
