A charged particle moves at a constant velocity in a straight line through a region in space...
a) is the electric field zero in the region? Explain
b) is the magnetic field zero i the region? Explain

I think a is yes because a charged particle will always create an electric field, but b is no because the electric field has to be alternating to form a magnetic one. is this correct?
