Question 13 A region contaings an electric field E = 7.4 i ˆ + 2.8 j ˆ kN / C and a magnetic field B =15 j ˆ +36 k ˆ mT. Find the electromagnetic force on (a) a stationary proton, (b) an electron moving with velocity v = 6.1 i ˆ Mm / s. (a) We’ll use the Lorentz force law, F =q( E + v × B ). For part (a), v = 0.

To solve this problem you can either use equation 29-3 and relate v to K (K= ½ mv 2 ), or you can derive the equation from first principles. In 2A you learned that if an object moves in a circle, it must be experiencing a force F=mv 2 /r to keep it moving in that circle. Then we observe that for a particle moving perpendicular to the B field, F=qvB.
