Using the right hand rule with symbols

  1. Apr 3, 2016 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    2. Relevant equations
    Right Hand Rule #3

    3. The attempt at a solution

    For #11 I can do b) left
    f) downward

    But I don't understand how to do a,c,e because I don't understand how to use RHR 3 with those inward/outward info for V.

    And I don't understand D because it doesn't say whether B is inward or outward.

    Please help! Thanks!

    Velocity is a vector quantity, isn't it? Why can you do these when B is into or out of the page?
