A charged particle moves under the influence of an electric field oriented along the y-axis. Note this sign convention: The direction of positive E is +y (toward top of screen) The red and blue vectors on the particle represents its velocity and acceleration.



The blue line plots position (vertical) as a function of time (horizontal) for damped SHM. The red line plots the decay of the amplitude.



Four moons revolve around a planet in circular orbits. Determine the period and radius of each orbit. Use the buttons on the right to start/stop the animation and step it frame-by-frame. Readouts of time and position coordinates are displayed above the buttons.
