_{mag}= q(v x B) and F

_{electric}= qE,

F

_{lorentz}= q [E + (v x B)]

can I say that F

_{lorentz}= F

_{mag}+ F

_{electric}?

Yes, of course! scalar multiplication is distributive and vector addition is commutative._{mag}= q(v x B) and F_{electric}= qE,

F_{lorentz}= q [E + (v x B)]

can I say that F_{lorentz}= F_{mag}+ F_{electric}?
