Physics

An electron travels at a uniform speed of 2.50 × 106 m/s toward the top of this page. It then enters a uniform magnetic field and experiences a maximum force of 5.15 × 10-8 N that points toward the right of the page.
What is the magnitude of the magnetic field?
What is the direction of the magnetic field?
