32.28. Model: A magnetic field exerts a force on a moving charge.
Visualize: Please refer to Figure Ex32.28.
Solve: (a) The force on a charge moving in a magnetic field is
r
r r
Fon q = qv × B = (qvBsinα, direction of right-hand rule)
The direction of the force on a negative charge is opposite the direction determined by the right-hand rule. The
r
r
magnetic field must be in a plane perpendicular
to both the v and F vectors. Using the right-hand rule for a
r
positive charge moving
to the right, the B field must be out of the page.
r
r
(b) The force F on the negative charge is into the page. Since the velocity is to the right, the magnetic field B
must be up.
