    Electric field produces a force on a charged particle, so does a magnetic field. These fields are aligned in a way that makes the forces act in opposite directions. These forces depend on the velocity of the particle, so if you want particles with only a certain velocity, you put a slit that particles only go through if they travel in a straight line. If they are too fast/slow then either the electric/magnetic force is greater, meaning there is a resultant force, so it doesn't travel in a straight line.
