(Be sure you understand where and how each goal in each assignment applies to our
homework, discussion, lecture, and lab activities.)
Relate and calculate magnetic forces, magnetic fields, and velocities of moving electrically
charged particles—directions and magnitudes—using the Lorentz Force Law.
Determine the trajectories taken by charged particles moving under the influence of
magnetic forces, given the geometry of the field and the initial particle velocities.
Relate and calculate magnetic fields and magnetic forces acting on electric currents.
Explain and show how to determine appropriate field directions and calculate physical
quantities involved in applications involving magnetic fields and forces—mass
spectrometer, velocity selector, cyclotron, magnetic rail gun, aurora, Earth's magnetic field.
