    Help me if you can!! Particle physics!! Give it a shot!!! Pleaseee

    in particle physics data from fermi lab I have to find out the momentum (p) of x, y, and z. The equation is p=qBx and i have q(coulombs) and B (tesla). The data I'm looking at says

    cos theta x=0.47

    cos theta y=-.10

    cos theta z=-.88

    using q=1.609E-19 and B=4
    how can I find p x, p y, p z?

    I'm not sure I understand what you've written out there correctly.

    cos theta x = 0.47?

    Do you mean x(cos (θ)) = 0.47 ?

    Also, for p = qBx, is that x a subscript or a variable?
