Multiple-choice questions may continue on the next column or page – find all choices before answering. 001 (part 1 of 3) 10.0 points The magnetic field over a certain range is given by vector B = B x ˆ ı + B y ˆ , where B x = 7 T and B y = 6 T. An electron moves into the field with a velocity vectorv = v x ˆ ı + v y ˆ + v z ˆ k , where v x = 5 m / s, v y = 8 m / s and v z = 8 m / s. The charge on the electron is- 1 . 602 × 10 − 19 C. What is the ˆ ı component of the force ex- erted on the electron by the magnetic field? Correct answer: 7 . 6896 × 10 − 18 N. Explanation: Let : v x = 5 m / s , v y = 8 m / s , v z = 8 m / s , q =- 1 . 602 × 10 − 19 C , B x = 7 T , and B y = 6 T . The force exerted on the electron by the mag- netic field is given by vector F = qvectorv × vector B = q vextendsingle vextendsingle vextendsingle vextendsingle vextendsingle vextendsingle ˆ ı ˆ ˆ k v x v y v z B x B y vextendsingle vextendsingle vextendsingle vextendsingle vextendsingle vextendsingle = q [- v z B y ˆ ı + v z B x ˆ + ( v x B y- v y B x ) ˆ k ] = (- 1 . 602 × 10 − 19 C) {- (8 m / s) (6 T)ˆ ı + (8 m /...
