Abstract

The principal difficulties encountered in attempting to solve the general problem of the motion of a non-relativistic, non-radiating charged particle in a magnetic field which varies position and time, are associated with the induced electric field. That is to say, the time variation of the magnetic field produces an electric field which also acts on the particle. Both these fields must be known as functions of time and position if the equations of motion are to be determined exactly.
