    • Abstract

       

      Following the approach of optical reference geometry we derive the expression for the total force in the radial direction acting on a charged particle in magnetic fields superimposed on the static Schwarzschild background and show the possible existence of bound orbits for particles in the field of ultra compact objects at distancesr⩽3m wherein the Lorentz force counterbalances both the gravitational and centrifugal forces.
