Right Hand Rule
The Attempt at a Solution
I can get the magnitude, but cannot get the directions from the RHR. Can somebody make video/explain?
Thanks!
Can you post a sketch and your work please? That will help us help you figure this out. Thanks.Homework Statement

The problem statement involves a 3-dimensional problem. The solution involves a sketch with 3-d coordinates and calculations. Are you asking us to reproduce all of your work in order to help you? Please post your detailed sketch and calculations so that we can help you.It is just the right hand rule...what "sketch" is there?
You are not helping. I'm out. Hopefully somebody else can help you.I don't need the magnitude part. I need the direction part... and 3d coordinates are not needed, the right hand rule is.
I think you need a refresher on the right hand rule. You may find the first sentence useful.I don't need the magnitude part. I need the direction part... and 3d coordinates are not needed, the right hand rule is.
So point your right thumb in the direction of the current (which way is that?) and your fingers in the direction of the field (which way is that?)point thumb in direction of v, fingers in direction of B, then F is direction of palm.
At least answer my questions about directions, or I too will quit the thread. You are not trying very hard to help others help you.I cannot bend my hand so far...
... but what direction is the magnetic field geographically?Oh, I already know those ones, it's trivial. Current goes toward east, magnetic field is 75 degrees below horizontal...
That's not a geographical direction. N, S, E, W....?Would be 75 degrees downward
So point your thumb E, your fingers S and 75 degrees down, with your hand flat. Which way is your palm facing?South
Yes. Down at what angle?Toward the north and down?
