# Force of an electron with magnetic and electric fields and velocity

## Homework Statement

An electron travels with v= 5.90(10)^{6} i through a point in space where E=<2.30 (10)^{5} i, -2.30(10)^{5} j> and B = <-0.200 k>

F=q(E+(v x B)

## The Attempt at a Solution

I did q of the electron equals 1.6(10)^-19 the with v x B = -.2k (5.9)10^6 i= -1.18(10)^6 j getting 1.6(10)^-19<2.3(10)^5 i, -2.3(10)^5 j + -1.18(10)^6 j> = <3.68(10)^-13 i , -1.41(10)^-13>

Looks like it's OK.

I would prefer for clarity and of course the opportunity to minimize future problems to have expressed your X product a little more rigorously.

More like <5.9*106 i> X <-.2 k> = <-1.18*106 j> just to keep track of where things came from.
