Start Animation

A positively charged particle is fired into regions of unknown electric field as above.  Position is in meters and time is in seconds and vx is x-component of velocity in m/s while vy is the y-component.

Rank the magnitude of the electric field (the size of the fields, ignoring the direction of the fields). a) red>blue>green, b) red>green>blue, c) blue>green>red, d) blue>red>green, e) green>red>blue, f) green>blue>red g) none of the above
