Given velocity and acceleration, determine magnetic field

  1. Feb 29, 2004 #1
    an electron has a velocity of 1.20 x 10^4 m/s(in the positive x direction), and an acceleration of 2.00 x 10^12 m/s^2 (in the positive z direction) in a uniform electric and magnetic field. if the electric field has magnitude of 20.0N/C (in the positive z direction), what can you determine about the magnetic field in the region? what can you not determine?
    (Please show steps and why, the correct answers i got are Bx(any value), By = -2.6mT, Bz=0)

    Do we get the credit instead of you if we answer your homework/take-home exam question?
