Just wondering, is there an equation for the force exerted on a charged particle moving perpendicularly through a magnetic field?

Ah I see, but how do I get the vector cross product for something like a beta particle passing though a magnetic field which is perpendicular to it?

The direction is found using (qv)x(B). So depending on the sign of q, your vector will point in one of two possible directions.
