Motion of a Proton in a Potential Field

You need a Java-capable browser such as Netscape 2 for Windows or Netscape 3 for Macintosh to be able to work with this simulation. The equipotentials are indicated by color (cyan is most negative, green is less negative, red is positive and yellow is most positive). Please be patient; it takes a few seconds to set up a new configuration.
