Unformatted text preview: eld, a magne&c force acts on it. –  This force has a maximum value when the charge moves perpendicularly to the magne&c field lines. –  This force is zero when the charge moves along the field lines. •  One can define a magne&c field in terms of the magne&c force exerted on a test charge moving in the field with velocity. (Similar to the way electric fields are defined) –  The magnitude of the magne&c force is F = q v B sin θ •...
