I tried using the right hand rule to find the direction of the force and seeing if the particle curves that way or not but obviously that's wrong

Please tell me if this is right or not I have down to 1 try on my online assignment i can't afford to get this wrong another time

New Answers :

Particle 3 is uncharged

Particle 5 is negative

Thumb is the Force, I am pretty sure that particle 1 is positive and particle 3 is uncharged and that particle 4 is negative but what confuses me is particle 2 and particle 5.Btw , what i am doing is seeing if the particle moves in the direction of my thumb(Force) if it doesn't then it is negative and the answers i get are the ones above.I truley have no idea which ones are wrong could you please tell me because i really I don't know where I am messing up the right hand rule. Here is another atempt i notice that i was doing something wrong with the right hand rule please tell me if its correct now.

Particle 3 is uncharged

Particle 5 is positive

Particle 4 is positive

Particle 2 is negative

Particle 1 is positive

Particle 3 is uncharged

Particle 5 is positive

Particle 4 is positive

Particle 2 is negative

Particle 1 is positive

Maybe you are just having trouble identifying what direction of force each particle is experiencing. You are supposed to be able to determine that by inspection. Look at the picture and tell me for each particle whether the force acting on the particle is pointed toward the upper left or the lower right.

particle 1 : upper left

particle 2: upper left

particle 3: is uncharged

particle 4:lower right

particle 5 : lower right

I really don't understand where i'm going wrong , i tried against using the knowledge above and i get

particle 1 : negative

particle 2: positive

particle 3: is uncharged

particle 4: positive

particle 5 : negative

That's the first set of your answers that is consistent. Particles 1 and 5 curve the their left, so have the same charge, while 2 and 4 curve to their right.

particle 1 : upper left

particle 2: upper left

particle 3: is uncharged

particle 4:lower right

particle 5 : lower right

I really don't understand where i'm going wrong , i tried against using the knowledge above and i get

particle 1 : negative

particle 2: positive

particle 3: is uncharged

particle 4: positive

particle 5 : negative

And I believe all of your answers are now correct.
