1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data If an electron is stationary in a magnetic field, will it experience a Lorentz force? 2. Relevant equations 3. The attempt at a solution The total vector force (Lorentz force - F) is F = Fe + Fm = Q(E + u X B) The Lorentz force can also be written in terms of Newton’s law such that F = ma = m (du/dt) = Q(E + u X B) ∴ Since the electron is stationary, acceleration equals zero and the so the electron does not experience a Lorentz Force.
