For each of the situations below, a charged particle enters a region of uniform magnetic field. Determine the direction of the force on each charge due to the magnetic field. Part A Determine the direction of the force on the charge due to the magnetic field. Hint A.1 Determining the direction of a magnetic force A charged particle moving through a region of magnetic field experiences a magnetic force, unless the velocity and magnetic field are parallel. If the velocity is parallel to the magnetic field, then the force is zero. Otherwise, the direction of the force can be found by using the right-hand rule. To employ the right hand rule: 1. Open your hand so that it is completely flat, and point the fingers of your right hand in the direction of the velocity vector. 2. Rotate your wrist until you can bend your fingers to point in the direction of the magnetic field. 3. The direction of your outstretched thumb is the direction of the magnetic force on a positive charge. ANSWER: points into the page. points out of the page. points neither into nor out of the page and . . Part B

ANSWER: points out of the page. points into the page. points neither into nor out of the page and . . Part C Determine the direction of the force on the charge due to the magnetic field. Note that the charge is negative. Hint C.1 Effect of a magnetic field on a negative charge You can use the right-hand rule to determine the direction of the force exerted on a positive charge. Once you find the direction of the force that would be exerted on a positive charge, the force on a negative charge will point in the opposite direction.

    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.
