Velocity & Force on a Moving Charge in Magnetic Field

  1. Apr 2, 2005 #1
    Are there components of the velocity that cannot be determined by measuring the force if one looks at the formula F = q*B*v?

    For non-relativistic cases, the vector form of that equation provides all info concerning the force exerted on a moving charge by a magnetic field:
    [tex]:\qquad \underline{F} \ = \ q\underline{v}\times \underline{B} [/tex]
