**What statement about magnetic fields interacting with a moving charge is correct?**

A) Magnetic fields can’t change the direction of motion of a moving charge.

B) Magnetic fields can do work on a moving charge.

C) Magnetic fields can accelerate a moving charge.

D) The force on a moving charge in a magnetic field can be in the direction of the magnetic field.

E) Magnetic fields can increase or decrease the kinetic energy of a moving charge.

A) Magnetic fields can’t change the direction of motion of a moving charge.

B) Magnetic fields can do work on a moving charge.

C) Magnetic fields can accelerate a moving charge.

D) The force on a moving charge in a magnetic field can be in the direction of the magnetic field.

E) Magnetic fields can increase or decrease the kinetic energy of a moving charge.

I know B) isn't correct, since the angle leads to any work being zero., although others I have read online says that it can do work so I don't know what to think.

C) I don't think this can be true, since if you can't do work how can you cause acceleration?

D) is false for sure based on the right hand rule

E) Can KE change without work
