Q:What is the force on an electron that has a velocity equal to 2e6 m/s i - 3e6 m/s when it is in a region with a magnetic field given by 0.75 T i + 0.45 T j - 0.60 T k?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

F=q(v X B)

I took the determinate of the electron's velocity and magnetic field and came up with <1.8e6,1.2e6,3.15e6> then multiplied my answer by 1.6e-19 C. My final answer is <28.8,19.2,50.4>pN.

Did I miscalculate anything?
