  1. This is a very, very, ideal problem.
    Nothing will happen unless the electron strays from its course perfectly down the B lines :) (unstable equilibrium)

  2. Hi Damon,
    I was first thinking like that and I check on d) but it shows wrong. Now I have only one attempt. Do you think there might be other solution possible? I would be very greatful.
