A charged particle moves with velocity v in a magnetic field B. The magnetic force on the particle is a maximum when v is (a) parallel to B, (b) perpendicular to B, (c) zero.

An electron moves in the plane of this paper toward the top of the page. A magnetic field is also in the plane of the page and directed toward the right. The direction of the magnetic force on the electron is (a) toward the top of the page, (b) toward the bottom of the page, (c) toward the left edge of the page, (d) toward the right edge of the page, (e) upward out of the page, (f) downward into the page.


The four wires shown in the figure all carry the same current from point A to point B through the same magnetic field. In all four parts of the figure, the points A and B are 10 cm apart. Rank the wires according to the magnitude of the magnetic force exerted on them, from greatest to least.

A charged particle is moving perpendicular to a magnetic field in a circle with a radius r. The magnitude of the magnetic field is increased. Compared to the initial radius of the circular path, the radius of the new path is (a) smaller (b) larger (c) equal in size.


The Figure shows a graphical representation of the field magnitude versus time for a magnetic field that passes through a fixed loop and is oriented perpendicular to the plane of the loop. The magnitude of the magnetic field at any time is uniform over the area of the loop. Rank the magnitudes of the emf generated in the loop at the five instants indicated, from largest to smallest.
