The total magnetic field at the origin:
An electron and a proton are each moving at 795 km/s in perpendicular paths as shown in (Figure 1) .
At the instant when they are at the positions shown, find the magnitude of the total magnetic field they produce at the origin.
Find the direction of the total magnetic field they produce at the origin.
