in reply to (way)(OT): Lorentz Force worked numerical example.

I'm not certain this will help (my last Physics class was 31 years ago), but you should take a look at Physics::Lorentz (which points to the underlying Transformation and Vector classes).

Revised: Please ignore, and my apologies. If anyone would think to check CPAN, it would be you...

    The package you suggest is for working with the Lorentz Transformation, which is used in special relativity. The OP here is concerned with electromagnetic interaction, which is quite different indeed.

    But, it was worth a shot! And a good shot, seeing as I was born when you took your last physics course ;)

      Many thanks for the gentle correction. After I posted, I realized that the OP was BrowserUk, who I know would have checked CPAN. So I immediately knew I was wrong...

      So... what is the dominant paradigm of the day? (I was taught that a new theory was seldom adopted before the death of the acceptors of the prior theory. In spite of the talk of Quantum Computing, I'd expect Quantum to be as dead as Heisenberg...)
