# Write the Expression, in a Vector Form, for the Lorentz Magnetic Force → F Due to a Charge Moving with Velocity → V in a Magnetic Field → B . What is the Direction of the Magnetic Force? - Physics

Short Note

Write the expression, in a vector form, for the Lorentz magnetic force $\vec{F}$ due to a charge moving with velocity $\vec{V}$ in a magnetic field $\vec{B}$. What is the direction of the magnetic force?

#### 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
