Homework Statement
An electron in electric & magnetic fields;
E = 3.0x10^{7} e_{x} NC-1
B = 3.0 e_{z} T
has velocity
v = 1.0x10^7 (2e_{x}-e_{y})
Calculate em force on the electron.
Homework Equations
I'm using the Lorentz force law here.
F = q(E + v X B)
I have an example solution using vectors to evaluate direction
| e_{x}_______e_{y}_______e_{z} |
| 2.0x10^{7}_ 1.0x10^{7} __ 0 |
| 0_______0________3.0 |
The Attempt at a Solution
I think this has been posted as the solution to vXB,but then why is the E value 3.0 T there???
Could someone please ecplain why this is.
