Solve: is perpendicular to both and so is either toward the top of the page or toward the bottom of the page. If is toward the top of the page, as shown in Figure 20.2b, then when you apply the right-hand rule your thumb points into the page. This is the specified direction of so is directed as shown in Figure 20.2b. gives 20.3. Set Up: The directions of and are shown in Figure 20.3. A proton has charge In part (a), An electron has charge Figure 20.3 Solve: (a) The right-hand rule says is into the page in Figure 20.3. (b) F is maximum when when is perpendicular to F is minimum when or when is either parallel or antiparallel to (c) is the same for an electron and a proton, so the same as for a proton. Since the proton and electron have charges of opposite sign, the forces on them are in opposite directions. The force on the electron is directed out of the page in Figure 20.3. Reflect: Only the component of perpendicular to contributes to the magnetic force. Therefore, this force is zero

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
