Charge in a magnetic field

Much of the physics in this topic builds on the work of James Clerk Maxwell, particularly the discovery of X-rays. Source: the late 1800s, a small number of problems remained for physicists to solve, and a small number of observations remained unexplained. As solutions were developed to these problems, the fundamental understanding of physics was challenged and changed. Eventually new and useful technology was developed as a result of our improved understanding of physics.

These slides provide a brief comment on the context of ‘Ideas to Implementation’, revise electric fields and outline the behaviour of charged particles moving in a magnetic field.
