Solution

The Lorentz magnetic force is given by the following relation:

`vecF=q(vecVxxvecB)`

Here, q is the magnitude of the moving charge.

The direction of the magnetic force is perpendicular to the plane containing the velocity vector `(vecV)`and the magnetic field vector  `(vecB)`

Concept: Force on a Moving Charge in Uniform Magnetic and Electric Fields
  Is there an error in this question or solution?
