Due to friction with the air, an airplane has acquired a net charge of 1.70 multiplied by 10-5 C. The plane moves with a speed of 2.80 multiplied by 102 m/s at an angle θ with respect to the earth's magnetic field, the magnitude of which is 5.00 multiplied by 10-5 T. The magnetic force on the airplane has a magnitude of 2.30 multiplied by 10-7 N. Find the angle θ. (There are two possible angles.)

________(smaller angle)

________(larger angle)

2. Relevant equations

B=F/QoVsin(angle)

3. The attempt at a solution

I got Sin(angle)=F/QoVB, and arrived at sing(angle)=.966, which gave me the smaller angle 75.1, how do you get the larger angle?
