Question

At the equator, near the surface of Earth, the magnetic field is approximately 55.0 µT northward, and the electric field is about 200 N/C downward in fair weather. Find the gravitational, electric, and magnetic forces on an electron with instantaneous velocity of 6.00 ✕ 106 m/s directed to the east in this environment.
