# Lorentz Force

on . Posted in Electromagnetism

Lorentz force, abbreviated as F, is when you place a moving charged particle in a magnetic field.

## Lorentz Force formula

$$\large{ F = Q \left( E \; v \; B \right) }$$
Symbol English Metric
$$\large{ F }$$ = Lorentz force $$\large{T}$$  $$\large{\frac{kg}{s^2-A}}$$
$$\large{ Q }$$ = electric charge  $$\large{C}$$ $$A-s$$
$$\large{ E }$$ = electric field $$\large{\frac{V}{ft} }$$   $$\large{\frac{V}{m}}$$
$$\large{ B }$$ = magnetic field $$\large{T}$$  $$\large{\frac{kg}{s^2-A}}$$
$$\large{ v }$$ = velocity of charge particle $$\large{\frac{ft}{sec}}$$   $$\large{\frac{m}{s}}$$
