Magnetic force:

F=qvBsinθ

(a)

q = 1.6 × 10-19 C

v = 1.0 × 107m/s

B = 0.40 T

θ = 45°

The field is directed in the positive x-direction. The velocity is directed in the positive z-direction making an angle of 45° with the field. Thus, the resultant force will be in the y-direction.

F = (1.6 × 10-19)(1.0 × 107)(0.40) sin 45 = 4.5 × 10-13 N j
