Magnetic Forces on Moving Charges
MetadataShow full item record
This interactive tutorial provides the practice to reinforce the concept of magnetic force of moving charges. The key concepts covered include: The direction of the resultant magnetic force is always perpendicular to the plane defined by the velocity vector of the charge and the magnetic field vector., The direction of motion of the charge is also influenced by the sign/polarity of the charge., If the velocity and magnetic force vectors are parallel (or anti-parallel), there is no magnetic force.The interactions in this tutorial involve the selection of a charge and the correct magnetic force vector given the velocity and magnetic field vectors.
