Let's consider the direction of the force on the moving charged particle in the magnetic field.
We're also going to use right-hand palm rule.
In figure (1), the direction of the magnetic field is into the page.
For questions 1-3 use the figure below and give the direction of the magnetic force on the charged particle (black dot). Note that for 1 and 2 the magnetic field is into the page and for 3 it is to the right. Note also the sign of the charge on the particle is given in parentheses (+) or (-)
What is the direction of the force on particle (1)?
A) Towards you out of the screen.
B) Towards the right of the screen.
C) Towards the bottom of the screen.
D) Away from you into the screen.
E) Towards the left of the screen.
F) Towards the top of the screen.
