Motion of Charged Particle in a Magnetic Field
If the velocity is in the i direction (v=vi) and the magnetic field is in the -k direction (B=-kB), prove using Newtons Second Law that the trajectory of this charge must be circular? Please help this is really important.

F = qv X B (X = cross product)
F = ma
qv X B = ma
Solve that and think about your solution...don't lose track of your unit vectors....and think about what they mean, what they tell you....
