Okay, i know that Fnet=the square root of Fe^2+Fb^2, and after drawing a diagram, i think that they are 2 perpendicular forces, but I don't know what to plug into the equation, or where to begin.

F = q(E + v x B) where E, v, and B are vectors and the x denotes the cross product. Pick any direction for the velocity (say the z direction) and then calculate the vector force. I think the other equaiton you have will just give you a magnitude.

How do I determine in which direction the force on a rod acts when joining two masses on an incline?
