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

    for this question, since direction of B and E are parallel, why the spot isn't situated in the middle? since sin 0 =0... or my concept is wrong ? can someone explain please?

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution

    We ask for the Relevant Equations in the HH Template for a reason. What is the equation for the Lorentz force? How does that help you solve this question?

    Nope. Not until you show some effort on your part. What do you think would be a good way for you to learn about the Lorentz Force, so that you can easily solve your homework problem?
