Hi gforce01! :smile:

Electric field, E, is force/charge …

that just means that the force on a body with charge q is qE

so force is proportional to charge, and also proportional and parallel to the electric field :wink:

The Lorentz force on a charge q is
F = qE + q(v x B)
where v x B (force/charge) represents the vector cross product of v (velocity) and B (magnetic field).
