Abstract The equations governing the guiding center motion of a charged particle in an electromagnetic field are obtained simultaneously and deductively, without considering individually the special geometric situations in which one effect or another occurs alone. The general expression is derived for the guiding center velocity at right angles to the magnetic field BbdB. This expression contains five terms arising in the presence of an electric field. They are in addition to the usual “ E × B… CONTINUE READING
