Figure CQ19.9

To determine

The rank of charges by the magnitude of the magnetic force exerted on them from largest to smallest.

Explanation

The magnetic force on a charged particle is defined as,

F=qvBsinθ

  • F is the magnetic force on the charged particle
  • q is the charge on the particle
  • v is the velocity of the particle
  • B is the magnetic field
  • θ is the angle between velocity and magnetic field

The magnetic force on charge A is,

FA=q0v0sin90°=q0v0      (1)

The magnetic force on charge B is,

FB=q0(2v0)sin90°=2q0v0      (2)

The magnetic force on charge C
