The force F experienced by a particle with charge q moving
with velocityv in a magnetic field B is given by the
equation F = q v x B. Of course, the force is zero if the particle is not moving (v = 0), or if there is no magnetic field (B = 0). There are other cases where a particle will not experience any force even when moving in a magnetic field. Please describe these situations.
Hint: In Indianapolis, the Earth's magnetic field has a magnitude of about 5.5 X 10-5 T.
The force is zero.
The force is to the North
The force is to the South
The force is upward
The force is downward
The force is to the East
The force is to the West
