Q. A positively charged particle is moving is moving initially along axis. There is a sudden change in the path due to the presence of electric and /or magnetic fields. The curved path followed by the particle is in the X-Y Plane and is found to be non-circular. Which of the following combination of electric field and magnetic field is true? As previously stated, this was a question asked in IIT JEE 2003 and Every book has explained it incorrectly. This question requires a bit of 3-D visualization to understand the different electric and magnetic forces being applied on the charged particle and to determine the true direction of electric and magnetic field in the space.

I am extremely pleased this innovative idea of teaching physics through videos. I must say this was really very helpful to me, better than all the books and material I have referred to and infact my teachers too. It taught me from the basics of each chapter to the toughest sums required for JEE.
