I want to simulate the path of an electron through the anode of an electron gun. I therefore need to calculate the force on the electron due to the electric field from the anode and apply that to its ...
I encountered a thought provoking article suggesting that electrons are electromagnetic waves. Is this possible? I may not agree with their entire model, but surely there is the possibility that an ...
Why is this the case.. I would have thought it would have followed the E field?
In a neutral conductor if we assume electrons as point charges, the electric field in the space between them cannot be identically zero. This microscopic field may be very weak. What if we were very ...
I have created a simulation of one electron bouncing through a 3D mesh of molecules. The electron hopping is determined by a calculation of electron transfer rate using the Marcus equation (a result ...
In my textbook, it says that any electron bound in metals, modelled as some potential well $U$, has negative total electron energy, as shown below in the figure. Why is the total electron energy ...
I was going over my notes for an introductory course to electricity and magnetism and was intrigued by something I don't have an answer to. I remember my professor mentioning, to the best I can ...
