The figure shows a particle that carries a charge of q0 = -2.80 × 10-6 C. It is moving along the +y axis at a speed of v = 4.8 × 106 m/s. A magnetic field of magnitude 3.35 × 10-5 T is directed along the +z axis, and an electric field of magnitude 123 N/C points along the -x axis. Concepts: (i) What forces make up the net force acting on the particle? (ii) How do you determine the direction of the magnetic force acting on the negative charge? (iii) How do you determine the direction of the electric force acting on the negative charge? (iv) Does the fact that the charge is moving affect the values of the magnetic and electric forces? Calculations: Determine the magnitude and direction of the net force that acts on the particle.
