ConceptMagnetic Force

#### Question

Define one tesla using the expression for the magnetic force acting on a particle of charge q moving with velocity $\vec{v}$  in a magnetic field $\vec{B}$ .

#### Solution

One tesla is the defined as the magnitude of magnetic field which produces a force of 1 newton when a charge of 1 coulomb moves perpendicularly in the region of the magnetic field at a velocity of 1 m/s.

$F = \text{ qv } B$

$\Rightarrow B = \frac{F}{\text{qv}}$

$\Rightarrow 1 T = \frac{1 N}{\left( 1 C \right)\left( 1 \text{ m/s} \right)}$

Is there an error in this question or solution?
