Lorentz force

Description

Lorentz force is the force applied on a charged particle, moving with velocity v, vertically into a magnetic field. A positively charged particle will be accelerated in the same linear orientation as the E field, but will curve perpendicularly to both the instantaneous velocity vector v and the B field according to the right-hand rule.
