We examine the traditional transport equation for classical, charged particles diffusing in a cold, absorbing medium subject to a uniform magnetic field and in which scattering is isotropic. Steady-state solutions in plane geometry are examined in some detail; we make no expansion about an isotropic angular distribution. Restricting the motion to two dimensions captures most of the interesting features; there is some discussion of the three-dimensional case.
