A 42 mT magnetic field points due west. If a proton of kinetic energy 9x10E-12 J enters this field in an upward direction, find the magnetic force acting on the proton in magnitude and direction.



What magnetic force would an electron experience due to Earth’s magnetic field if it were moving at 3x10E6 m/s directly away from earth’s surface? (Earth’s B-field in the region is parallel to the surface and has a strength of 550 µT)



A 60 cm long wire is oriented from east to west directly above the equator and carries a current of 5 A (toward the east). What is the magnitude and direction of the magnetic force on this wire due to the earth’s magnetic field (30 µT oriented south and north)?
