1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data An electron (charge = –1.6 x 10^–19 C) is moving at 3.0 x 10^5 m/s in the positive x direction. A magnetic field of 0.80 T is in the positive z direction. The magnetic force on the electron is: http://edugen.wileyplus.com/edugen/art2/common/pixel.gif a) 0 N b) 3.8 x 10^–14 N in the positive z direction c) 3.8 x 10^–14 N in the negative z direction d) 3.8 x 10^–14 N in the positive y direction e) 3.8 x 10^–14 N in the negative y direction 2. Relevant equations F(b) =q(vxb) 3. The attempt at a solution Force is 3.8x10^-14 In terms of direction, I was told that it was the positive y direction, but isn't the charge negative so it should be the negative y direction?
