Magnetic Forces RHR A positive charge moves in a B-field that points to the right. What direction is the force on the charge for each case? Fingers with B , thumb with v , force points in the direction of your palm. v B F = qvB sin θ θ is the angle between v and B. F big, out F = 0 F = 0 F big, in F smaller, in F smallest, in

Magnetic Forces RHR A positive charge moves to the right in a B-field that points in the direction shown. What direction is the force on the charge? v B F is out of the page, still perpendicular to the velocity. F F = qvB sin θ Fingers with B , thumb with v , force points in the direction of your palm.
