Textbook Problem

Consider an electron near the Earth’s equator. In which direction does it tend to deflect if its velocity is (a) directed downward? (b) Directed northward? (c) Directed westward? (d) Directed southeastward?

a)

To determine
The direction in which the electron near the earth equator will get deflected.

Explanation

Given info: The velocity of the electron is directed downward.

Explanation:

Right hand rule: Consider a positive charge having a velocity v , moving in a magnetic field B . The direction of the magnetic force on the positive charge can be found out by using right hand rule. When the fingers of the right hand are curled from the direction of v

b)

To determine
The direction in which the electron near the earth equator will get deflected.

c)

To determine
The direction in which the electron near the earth equator will get deflected.

d)

To determine
The direction in which the electron near the earth equator will get deflected.
