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

1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

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.

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution
