Hi All,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Just a thought. The Lorentz force equation as we all know is: F = qE + qvxB. We know that Electrical Field can be written as del(Phi), where Phi is the electrical potential. Also, Force can be written as del(Energy) - correct me on this one. Hence is there a representative term for vxB. Can vxB be written as del(something) where something is a meaningful quantity?

Just curious,

Thanks - Michael
