Lorentzwas a Dutchphysicist who refined certain aspects ofelectromagnetic theory. He, along withIrish mathematical physicist George F.FitzGerald, deduced fundamentalproperties of the electromagneticbehavior of moving bodies that formedthe basis of Einsteins Special Theoryof Relativity.The force of a magnetic field on amoving charge is sometimes called theLorentz Force.233Important Facts About Velocity and Net Force Vectors (Review)vFvFSame direction: speeding up.Opposite directions: slowing down.Right angles: changing direction, same speed.vF234Vector Cross Product (Review)bac=; )sin(bac=The direction comes from therighthand rule. It is at a rightangle to the plane formed by aand b. In other words, the crossproduct is at right angles to bothaand b.
