## Homework Statement

An electron in a vacuum is first accelerated by a voltage of 41300 V and then enters a region in which there is a uniform magnetic field of .145 T at right angles to the direction of the electron's motion.

What is the magnitude of the force on the electron due to the magnetic field?

## Homework Equations

[itex]F=qvBsinθ[/itex]

## The Attempt at a Solution

At first I though the 41300 V was just a number to throw me off (they do that a lot), but now I think it is important. I know the charge, magnetic field, and sin90=1. So the only thing I'm missing is velocity, but I have no clue how to calculate that from the information I was given. Any help?

Thanks
