Lorentz force


Genaral information on “Lorentz force”

Without magnetic field
Electrons emerge from the glowing cathode (-). On theit path to the anode (+), they are accelerated by the potential difference applied. The electrons move in a straight line.With magnetic field
Interaction with the magnetic field (such as the field of a coil) produces a curvature in the previously straight path of the electrodes. The magnetic field, or more precisely the Lorentz force, force the electrodes onto a circular path perpendicular to the magnetic field force line.
