Answer:

1.) F = 5.3×10^-3 N

2.) Positive y – direction

Explanation:

The parameters given are:

Charge q = 0.0005C

Velocity V = 2.5010 m/s

Magnetic field B = 4.2 T

Magnetic force F = BVqsinØ

F = BVq

since Ø = 90 degree

Substitute all the parameters into the formula

F = 4.2 × 2.5010 × 0.0005

Therefore, the magnetic force on a particle is F = 5.3 × 10^-3 N

2.) According to Fleming’s left hand rule, the direction of the magnetic force will be perpendicular to the magnetic field which moving upward of the screen.
