Expert Answer:

As we know that

F= qvB sinθ        (1)

Under the following conditions, there will be no force experienced by the charged particle

i) If the charged particle is at rest i.e   v = 0, then from eqn(1)

   F= 0

ii) If the charged particle moves parallel to the direction of the magnetic field i.e

θ= 00  or 1800

=sinθ = 0
Therefore from eqn(1),

F=0.
