I have this problem where i should find the direction and magnitude of the electric and the magnetic force on the electron. And then I'm supposed to find the direction and magnitude of the acceleration.
E = 1000 N/m B = 2,5 T v = 500 m/s
X |X X| X ¤-> X |X X| X X |X X| X V V
I've found the electric force by Fe = E*q. With direction out of the screen by the right hand rule. Magnetic force = qvb in the y direction (meaning up) by the right hand rule. Now Im supposed to find the acceleration but I'm a bit stuck here. What i'm struggling with is to combine the two forces on the electron. Can someone get me in the right direction?
