A proton with an initial velocity of magnitude v in the +x direction enters a uniform magnetic field. For which direction or directions of the magnetic field, if any, will there be zero magnetic force on the proton?
There were no equations i could think of that will help we with this problem, other than the open palm thing that my professor talked about in class today.
The Attempt at a Solution
I don't really understand the question. on the graph (+) x is in the third quadrant and that's the velocity. I tried -x by itself, i tried -x, +y, and +z. And +y, +z. All three were incorrect. I don't think i understand what it means to have zero magnetic force on a proton.
