###### Problem Details

A particle with charge −6.00 nC is moving in a uniform magnetic field B⃗ =−( 1.23 T )k^. The magnetic force on the particle is measured to be F⃗ =−( 4.00×10−7 N )i^+( 7.60×10−7 N )j^.

1-Calculate the x-component of the velocity of the particle.

2-Calculate the y-component of the velocity of the particle.
