Was wondering if anyone is familiar with lorenzt force? Here is the problems whatever help you can give that would be great thank you in advance. Does anyone know a good site to practice these types of problems

Homework Statement


An electron is moving initially in the +x direction in a magnetic field of 3.4 mT that is
pointing in the −z direction. The magnitude of the initial velocity is 5.3 × 105 m/s.
(a) Draw the x, y plane and in it the initial velocity, magnetic field, and Lorentz force.
(b) Calculate the Lorentz force.
(c) The electron motion describes a circular orbit, calculate the radius of this orbit, and
draw it in the graph.
