State the rule, which governs the direction of the magnetic Lorentz force.

The direction of the magnetic Lorentz force is governed by Right hand thumb rule. According to this rule, if the curl of the fingers describes the cross product ( ×) then the thumb gives the direction of the force ().
As per this rule, the direction of is always perpendicular to the plane containing and.

- As we know, work done by Magnetic force is always zero in moving a charged particle./So it cannot change speed of charged particle. MY doubt is that, can magnetic force change direction of motion of charged particle?
- Sir , if a magnetic field is increasing in a cylindrical volume at a constant rate. then what will be direction of instantaneous acceleration experienced by an electron placed inside cylinder but not on center?
- pls explain
- What do you mean by magnetic Lorentz force?
- When will be the force experienced by moving charge in a magnetic field maximum and minimum?
- What is the work done by a magnetic field on a moving charge?
- In the expression, F= qvBsinθ which pair of vectors among , and is always perpendicular to each other.
- Deduce an expression for the force experienced by the moving charged particle in a uniform magnetic field?
