Find the direction of the magnetic field acting on the positively charged particle moving in the various situations shown in Figure P19.3 if the direction of the magnetic force acting on it is as indicated. Figure P19.3 (Problems 3 and 25) For Problem 25, replace the velocity vector with a current in that direction.

a)

To determine
The direction of the magnetic field.

Explanation

Given info: The velocity of the positively charged particle is directed rightward on the plane of the paper. The magnetic force is directed on the plane of the paper and pointing upward.

Explanation:

Right hand rule: When the fingers of the right hand are placed pointing the direction of the velocity of the positively charged particle, the thumb p...
