Motion of a Charged Particle in Electricity
A force acts on a particle with the charge q in the electric field vector E in accordance with the following formula:
(vector) F=q? (vector)E
A charged particle in a uniform electric field moves in a parabolic shape. This phenomenon is similar to the motion of a particle in the gravitational field near the Earth's surface.
