An electron experiences a force F = (3.4i - 1.9j)x10^-13 N when passing through a magnetic field B = (0.50 T)k Determine the electron's velocity.

v(x) =

v(y) =

2. Relevant equations

v = F/qB

3. The attempt at a solution

v = (3.4i - 1.9j)x10^-13 / (1.6x10^-19)(0.50)k = (4.25i - 2.375j)x10^6

v(x) = 4.25x10^6

v(y) = -2.375x10^6

I know I'm doing something wrong, I'm just not sure what. Please help.
