Magnitude of a charged body

  1. Dec 4, 2015 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    A charged body, moving with a velocity of 8.0 * 104m/s at an angle of 30.0° with respect to a magnetic field of strength 5.6 * 10-5 T, experiences a force of 2.0 * 10-4N.
    What is the magnitude of the charge?

    2. Relevant equations


    3. The attempt at a solution
    I have no idea where to even begin to solve this problem. Appreciate any help or solutions

    Hello dave :welcome:

    PF requires you do something yourself too; check the guidelines: no idea doesn't qualify. We understand you need help; make clear what help actually helps you.

    In the mean time: check your notes and/or textbook, or Google Lorentz force

    Lorentz's force is where you should begin.
