Physics 42 February 22, 2006 Given the electric and magnetic fields E and B, the completely general equation for the force on a point particle q is: F q = q E + q v x B This is referred to as the Lorentz equation. The force on an any charged object is obtained by summing (or integrating) over the forces on each point q i (or differential dq ) charge component. The complete EM force The fundamental force law of electromagnetism
