This print-out should have 6 questions. Multiple-choice questions may continue on the next column or page – fnd all choices beFore answering. There will be no class on ±riday Sept. 17. This is an out-oF-class assigment in lieu oF class. It Focuses on understanding how to calculate the magnitude and direction oF the Force on a moving charge or a current-carrying wire. 001 (part 1 oF 4) 10.0 points The strength oF Earth’s magnetic feld B at the equator is approximately equal to 5 × 10 - 5 T. The Force on a charge q mov- ing in a direction perpendicular to a magnetic feld is given by F = qvB ,wh e r e v is the speed oF the particle. The direction oF the Force is given by the right-hand rule. Suppose you rub a balloon in your hair and your head acquires a static charge oF 2 × 10 - 9 C. IF you are at the equator and driving west at aspeedoF80m / s, what is the strength oF the
